Structure of the OIML-CS

The OIML-CS comprises:

  • Management Committee (MC);
  • Advisory Panel (AP)*;
  • Test Laboratories Forum (TLF);
  • Board of Appeal (BoA).


The MC is responsible for the operation of the OIML-CS under the authority of the CIML, with an Executive Secretary from the BIML who is responsible for undertaking the day-to-day activities of the OIML-CS under the direction of the MC. An AP is used to provide advice to the MC, in the form of recommendations, on issues such as the acceptance of new Issuing Authorities and the approval of technical and metrology experts. The TLF provides a platform for handling practical and/or technical questions pertaining to test specifications, test methods and test equipment, and to propose amendments/improvements to OIML Recommendations. A BoA is provided to address appeals against decisions of the MC and to recommend solutions to any other dispute referred to it with regard to the application of the rules of the OIML-CS.

* A proposal to replace the AP with a Review Committee, which will be a sub-committee of the MC, is currently under consideration.
