Today, the management and staff of the Barbados National Standards Institution (BNSI), celebrate World Metrology Day, along with our fellow citizens and global partners. This Day, is in recognition of a critical worldwide measurement system, which supports scientific innovation, industrial manufacturing and international trade. As we focus on the theme “Metrology in the Digital Era”, I am confident that our sustained efforts to build-out a well-developed National Quality Infrastructure (NQI), consistent with internationally accepted and required practices, can and will improve trade and access to markets for Barbadian enterprises. By incorporating modern digital technology through this approach, we will realize increases in competitiveness by producing goods and services that meet the quality specifications of global markets.
