|Objectives||- Broaden the calibration services of the NMI through inclusion of capabilities of more developed NMIs.
- Raise awareness of the industry.
- Disseminate traceability to customers in the country.
|When to apply||Calibration demand in the country, which cannot be satisfied by NMI.|
|Requirements||The NMI has to group the demand, coordinate with developed NMI and organize the logistics.|
|Limits of the tool||Extensive awareness raising activities are necessary in order to promote and facilitate the organization of the group calibration.|
|Steps||2.10.1 Invite companies to participate and gather technical information.
2.10.2 Identify Supplier (NMI from the region) to provide calibration services.
