Calibration Service for the essential oils production value

The National Metrology Institute of South Africa forms part of the technical infrastructure support under the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic). We work together with the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) and the National Regulatory of Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) to enable the fair and safe trade of products and services in South Africa 
and the region.

NMISA disseminates traceability to the National Measurement Standards, which are linked to the international system of units (SI) through calibration of measuring equipment. Traceability to SI, allows weights and measures in South Africa to be comparable to weights and measures in other parts of the world.

  • Calibration of mass balances, analytical balances
  • Calibration of mass pieces (for mass balance verification)
  • Thermometers, digital thermometers
  • Water activity meters
  • Temperature and Humidity Data loggers
  • Volumetric glassware
