BIPM Virtual Workshop on Accurate Monitoring of Surface Ozone, 5th to 9th of October 2020
October 12, 2020
The representative of the Directorate of Measures and Precious Metals Mrs. Dr Jelena Bebić, Head of Group for Metrology in Chemistry participated in the work of the BIPM virtual workshop on Accurate Monitoring of Surface Ozone. The workshop attended 72 participants from different countries from the world.
The reference method for ground-level ozone measurements is based on UV photometry, with replicates of the NIST Standard Reference Photometer (SRP) acting as primary standards for numerous national and international ozone-monitoring networks. Therefore, measurements of ozone amount fractions in ambient air are ultimately anchored to the value of the ozone absorption cross-section at the wavelength of 253.65 nm. A consensus value with the smallest uncertainty ever achieved was published in 2019. Global coordination is now required to implement the 2019 value, which will increase the measured atmospheric ozone concentrations.
The workshop aims to gather representatives of reference laboratories, monitoring networks, legislators, and ozone analyser manufacturers to develop a plan and timetable for the adoption of the 2019 value.
Directorate of Measures and Precious Metals has Reference Photometer for Ozone Assay - NIST SRP 54 (Standard Reference Photometer), which is the national standard of the Republic of Serbia in the field of measurement of ambient ozone concentration as well as internationally recognized calibration and measurement capabilities in this field published in BIPM CMC database

Notice on Initiation of Proceedings Inter-laboratory Comparison (PT Scheme) in the Field of Time and Frequency
July 3, 2020
Directorate of Measures and Precious Metals (DMDM), the Section for electrical quantities, time and frequency, plans in the future to organize inter-laboratory comparison in the field of Time and Frequency:
1. Calibration of time and frequency standards
All interested laboratories that want to participate in the aforementioned comparison, PT-scheme, can express their intention sending email to office@dmdm.rs or renovica@dmdm.rs, at the latest by October 15, 2020.
Participating laboratories will bear the costs of inter-laboratory comparison and the costs of transporting objects of calibration. Laboratories are required to provide transportation to the following participating laboratory, in accordance with the comparison technical protocol.
DMDM, as a pilot laboratory, after collecting applications, will submit a technical protocol to all participants in the comparison.
Depending on the number of interested laboratories, DMDM will subsequently determine the start date for the above activity.
Costs to be paid on account of DMDM for comparison purposes will amount to 33,600.00 RSD.

The World Metrology Day – May 20, 2020
Measurements for global trade
May 20, 2020
May 20 is World Metrology Day, commemorating the anniversary of the signing of the Metre Convention in 1875. This treaty provides the basis for a worldwide coherent measurement system that underpins scientific discovery and innovation, industrial manufacturing and international trade, as well as the improvement of the quality of life and the protection of the global environment.
The theme for World Metrology Day 2020 is Measurements for global trade. This theme was chosen to create awareness of the important role measurement plays in facilitating fair global trade; ensuring products meet standards and regulations, and satisfying customer quality expectations.
Across the world, national metrology institutes continually advance measurement science by developing and validating new measurement techniques at the necessary level of sophistication. The national metrology institutes participate in measurement comparisons coordinated by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) to ensure the reliability of measurement results worldwide.
The International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) develops International Recommendations, which aim to align and harmonize requirements worldwide in many fields. The OIML also operates the OIML Certification System (OIML-CS) which facilitates international acceptance and global trade of regulated measuring instruments.
These international metrology systems provide the necessary assurance and confidence that measurements are accurate, providing a sound basis for global trade today and helping us to prepare for the challenges of tomorrow.

Law on confirmation of the Convention on the Control and Marking of Articles of Precious Metals with annexes I and II
March 12, 2020
Law on confirmation of the Convention on the Control and Marking of Articles of Precious Metals with annexes I and II was published in “Official Gazette of RS – International treaties”, No. 4/20 from March 5, 2020 and will enter into force on March 13, 2020.
The enactment of this law created the preconditions for the full membership of the Republic of Serbia in the Convention on the Control and Marking of Articles of Precious Metals (hereinafter: the Convention).
The Convention is a multilateral international treaty concluded to date by 20 states and in which RS as an applicant state currently has observer status.
The full membership of the Republic of Serbia in the Convention will contribute to the reduction of the cost of exporting precious metal articles, as there will be no obligation for additional testing and/or hallmarking abroad for items marked with the CCM (Common Control Mark) stamp in the Directorate of Measures and Precious Metals. This increases the competitiveness of domestic producers of precious metal articles on the foreign market, which is of particular importance, given that this activity is predominantly performed by micro and small enterprises in the Republic of Serbia.
The acquisition of full membership of RS in the Convention will enable precious metal articles that are marked with the Convention mark and which have the prescribed degree of fineness, can be placed on the market of the Republic of Serbia without further testing or marking.
