IMG 6515 1 IMG 6604
December 19, 2017: NMIM launched the MyRM Gold Standard at the SIRIM's Open Day which was held in SIRIM Shah Alam with the theme of 'Merakyatkan Kualiti' in conjunction with the launching of the SIRIM Gold Hallmarking Certification Scheme. The MyRM Gold is developed to ensure that Malaysia (MyRM Gold) all gold purity measuring equipment are based on the International System of Unit (SI Unit) in order to promote fair trading in the gold business in Malaysia. It is very important that all gold purity measuring equipment to be traceable to only one reference which is the Malaysian Standard Gold Reference Material (MyRM Gold). It is to ensure that the equipment used are internationally recognized and the value of the gold purity are the same regardless the types of the measuring equipment. With the establishment of the MyRM Gold, it is hoped that prosperity and harmony between gold industry players and consumers can be achieved.

  • PT MA
    Proficiency Testing (PT) is the determination of the calibration or testing performance of a laboratory by means of inter-laboratory comparison (ILC). Inter-laboratory comparisons in which an artefact is distributed to laboratories and the results are compared to reference values - to determine the performance of individual lab in the comparison. Measurement audits (MA) in which an artefact is distributed to one laboratory and the results are compared to reference values (one-off).

    The Mutual Recognition Arrangement of International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM MRA) is the supporting structure through the National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) in corroborate the international equivalence of their measurement standards and the calibration and measurement certificates issued by them. The technical basis of CIPM MRA is the set of results obtained for certain range of time through scientific key comparison carried out by the Consultative Committees (CCs) of the CIPM, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) and the Regional Metrology Organizations (RMOs).
