The Metrology Laboratory Serving the Construction Materials Industry

Metrology is a fundamental tool for:

  • Ensuring traceability and reliability of measurements
  • Controlling measurement and inspection processes and guaranteeing product quality
  • Meeting the requirements of customers and order givers
  • Meeting the requirements of the quality approach and accreditation

To connect test equipment and measurement and control instruments and ensure the traceability of measurements, CETEMCO offers its partners an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration and verification service for multiple sizes.
