International Cooperation

Department 9.3


The International Cooperation department supports developing and emerging countries in the task of developing and applying an internationally recognized quality infrastructure that has been tailored to suit the countries' needs. A functional quality infrastructure is essential for our daily lives: for free, fair and safe trade, for reliable and safe health care, for environmental protection and for the expansion of renewable energies.

The International Cooperation department at PTB advises governments and ministries, advances the quality infrastructure institutions and provides assistance to small and medium-sized enterprises.
