About the INMS

The Institute for National Measurement Standards (INMS) is Canada’s national metrology institute responsible for evaluation of standards and methods of measurement. The SCC and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) implemented the Calibration Laboratory Assessment Service (CLAS) which provides quality system and technical assessment services and certification of specific measurement capabilities of calibration laboratories. This was an important stop for INMS in the establishment of the Canadian Calibration Network which ensures easier access to calibration services with certified traceability to national and international measurement standards.
