The draft of the fourth edition of the International Vocabulary of Metrology (VIM4) has been made available for commenting. To better understand VIM4, the IEC community is invited to join a webinar that will provide an overview of this new draft edition. Luca Mari, who serves as the Chair of IEC TC 1 on Terminology, will provide a presentation during this webinar.

The International Vocabulary of Metrology (VIM) provides the concepts and definitions for terminology related to the scientific field of measurement. This includes the basic principles governing quantities and units used by scientists in academia, government as well as industry.

A new edition of this vocabulary, known as VIM4, has been prepared by the Joint Committee for Guides in Metrology (JCGM) Working Group on the International Vocabulary of Metrology (VIM) – WG2. The IEC is a member of JCGM together with several other international organizations, including the BIPM.

The webinar is organized by JCGM WG2 and will take place on 6 May at 14h CEST. Topics to be covered include the significant changes made to the new edition, an overview of a new chapter in the vocabulary devoted to nominal properties and their examination as well as the process for providing comments to this revised edition.

Further information, including registration, is available via Zoom.
