National Metrology System is of primary importance for any state, since it is the prerequisite for the development of other branches of metrology as well as new technologies, and for the development of the society as a whole. The basic tasks of a national metrology institution are providing a measurement traceabillity of the national measurement standards and delivering measurement traceability to the users and their measurement needs in various segments (Science, Environment, Health, Food, Agriculture, Transport, Telecommunications, Industry, Trade, Taxation, Judicial authorities, and Police). The basic results of this work are especially assurance of traceable measurements in the Republic of Slovenia and knowledge transfer or expert assistance in performing the most sophisticated measurements for a wide range of users.


In Slovenia, the National Metrology System is entrusted to the Metrology Institute of the Republic of Slovenia (MIRS) as the national metrology institute (NMI), which provides traceability for several units of SI System. For certain SI Units, national standards are recognised and entrusted with a mandate by MIRS to other legal entities (DI).
