On 9 December, the European Union signed a Contribution Agreement with United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) involving €4 million for a new technical assistance project in Armenia.
The project will help to upgrade the Metrology system of Armenia through the institutional strengthening of the National Body for Standards and Metrology, improving the legal, regulatory and governance system in line with international recommendations and best practices, and will increase Armenia’s participation in international and regional metrology communities as well as interaction with the European Association of Metrology Institutes (EURAMET).
The project will help to establish four calibration laboratories by purchasing, installing and commissioning the measurement standards, measuring instruments and other required equipment.
According to the EU Delegation to Armenia, by implementing this project, Armenia will be able to “meaningfully use the benefits of Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA), improve the quality of goods produced in Armenia, and ensure the international recognition of tests performed in Armenia, resulting in increased trade with the EU and other foreign markets.”
