Future Editions


The OIML Bulletin is one, if not the only, international publication dedicated to legal metrology topics

In accordance with CIML Resolution 2019/30, which was approved at the 54th CIML Meeting in Bratislava, there is a clear desire for the Bulletin to be an attractive publication for legal metrology worldwide, and for it to be an excellent advertisement for our Organisation.

This can be achieved through long-term planning of the future editions and identification of key topics of high interest, for instance, legal control of measuring instruments in the fields of energy, health and the environment, where important aspects such as new technology, legal requirements, or test/verification procedures will be addressed.

In addition, support is sought from CIML Members and Corresponding Member Representatives who are ready to take on the responsibility of acting as “Mentors” for certain key topics / editions and technical articles. These are not necessarily expected to be written by the “Mentors” themselves, but by experts that a “Mentor” has identified and contacted.

In order to identify key topics of significant interest and “Mentors” to lead them, it was proposed by the CIML President that the BIML prepares, and makes publicly available on the OIML website, a plan for the upcoming eight to ten editions of the Bulletin.

The table available below is intended to be “dynamic”, i.e. proposed key topics may be moved to other editions depending on available “Mentors” and authors for technical articles.

Become a Mentor


All CIML Members and Corresponding Member Representatives are encouraged to support the OIML Bulletin, to share their legal metrology experiences with the legal metrology community worldwide, and to take responsibility either as a “Mentor” for one of the next editions of the Bulletin, or by promoting it at TC/SC/Project Group meetings, RLMO meetings, CEEMS AG meetings, and other opportunities.

CIML Members and Corresponding Member Representatives who would like to be a “Mentor” for a specific edition / key topic, or who would like to suggest that a new key topic be added to the list, are asked to contact the BIML (chris.pulham@oiml.org).
