APLMF Mission Statement
The Asia-Pacific Legal Metrology Forum (APLMF) is a grouping of legal metrology authorities, whose objective is the development of legal metrology and the promotion of free and open trade in the region through the harmonisation and removal of technical or administrative barriers to trade in the field of legal metrology. As one of the regional organisations working in close liaison with the OIML, the APLMF promotes communication and interaction among the legal metrology organisations and seeks harmonisation of legal metrology in the Asia Pacific region.
APMP, APLAC and APLMF are recognized by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), as Specialist Regional Bodies. Specialist Regional Bodies assist the APEC Sub-committee on Standards and Conformance to meet the objective of eliminating technical barriers to trade within the region.
APLMF Training and Events
2020 Training Courses and Events
The MEDEA Coordination Committee met by video conference 17/3/20 and it was agreed that as a precautionary measure, and until international travel restrictions and uncertainty regarding the pandemic are resolved, planned face to face training activities will be suspended. Specifically, this means that the Belt Weighing (June) and Pre-packaged Goods Inspection (July) training courses will be postponed until further notice. This decision will be reviewed on a monthly basis and as soon as we are able to confirm when the training can be rescheduled we will advise members and update the APLMF website.
We are also closely monitoring the potential impact of the pandemic on our 27th APLMF Forum and Working Group meetings currently planned for the Philippines in December and will keep you informed of developments.
