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.
