About us
The first Weights and Measures Law in Iran was adopted in 1925 in 11 articles and two annexes. According to this law, the metric system was announced as the official measuring system in the country. This Law was amended in 1932 in the Parliament. In 1975, Islamic Republic of Iran joined Meter Convention and parliament adopted Iran’s membership to BIPM and OIML. Due to the pressing necessity, establishing an official organization seemed to be an inevitable concern, which eventually paved the way for the organizational nucleus of the Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran in 1952. Later the Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran was established in 1960 and ISIRI was recognized as national body for the field of measuring. Metrology, Weights and Measures Center was estab‌lished in 1975 with the technical assistances of UNIDO, UNDP and UNESCO.
In 2015, Metrology Center of ISIRI prompted to develop the National Metrology Development Strategy program using the latest scientific, academic, research and industrial capa‌bilities.
In 2017, National Metrology Centre of Iran was member of the Regional Metrology Organization in Asia APMP.
ISIRI law was amended in 2018 in the IR IRAN Parliament
