Legal Metrology Seminar for the Americas
Jul 16-20, 2000 ( Richmond, VA )
Legal Metrology Seminar for the Americas (LMS 2000), sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) was held in Richmond, Virginia, from July 16- 20, 2000. The Seminar was held in conjunction with the 85th Annual Meeting of the NCWM and served to follow up on a meeting of some NCWM associate members held at the previous NCWM Interim Meeting in Bethesda.
The objective was to discuss mainly legal metrology practices and capabilities for type evaluation and approval and also legal requirements for prepackaged products. The discussions took into consideration developments in these areas internationally and in other regions. The format included both formal presentations and opportunity for open dialogue about relevant issues raised. Simultaneous interpretation in Spanish was provided. In addition to an exchange of ideas in the Seminar, participants were able to observe first-hand the operation and activities of the NCWM.
