British Measurement & Testing Association

The Voice of Measurement & Testing

BMTA was created in 1990 in response to the need for an independent ‘lobby’ for the private sector to speak with one voice to Government, UKAS, BSI and other official bodies on issues affecting the whole measurement and testing community.

BMTA was created in 1990 in response to the need for an independent 'lobby' for the private sector to speak with one voice to Government, UKAS, BSI and other official bodies on issues affecting the whole measurement and testing community.

BMTA represents the interests of the measurement and testing industry in the UK and in Europe, through its representation on EUROLAB, the voice for laboratories in Europe.

BMTA will encourage you to make your views known in the standards making process, both nationally and internationally, through the Association and individual membership of relevant committees. We work to increase awareness of the measurement and testing industry, and provide training, through seminars and workshops, on topical subjects. It is a non-profit making association that is run by a Council elected by its members.
