Chairman greets standardization and metrology workers

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

Dear Friends,

Please accept my sincere congratulations on the occasion of your occupational holiday and the World Standards Day.

Standards do contribute a lot in a society life, highlighting hereby the vital importance of standards for existence and further progress of mankind, as they provide access to the cutting-edge achievements of science and technology, along with a variety of products and services worldwide. We can meet standards in all spheres of our everyday life and business; they embrace every aspect of human activities -- environmental protection, security, health, access to information and knowledge, and the establishment of a fully-fledged civil society in Ukraine. Measurements are used in all areas of human activities.

'Look thrice before you leap' -- this wise proverb decodes the significance of measurements as a component of overall human activities. Therefore, metrology is a fundamental science providing an extra-important method of achieving accuracy and traceability in measurements, and in applied science -- a basis for the whole of today's production. It applies to the national legislation and international legal agreements, industrial and technological practice, and the provision of accuracy control functions in arbitration tests, product tests, etc. This is how broad and vitally important is your area of operation.

Your prof. holiday was established in 2002, and according to the decree of the President of Ukraine it has been set to celebrate on October the 10th annually.

Standardization and metrology are significant for any production process, as they define a set of measures that ensure compliance of the final product with all the necessary requirements. In fact, the scope of the activities of standardization covers the entire production process. The main trade goals are to ensure high productivity of both personnel and equipment, optimization of material consumption and investment of time and energy required to produce, as well as safety in the manufacture and subsequent operation of manufactured products. No doubt, your work deserves a special award as thanks to you we can consume quality products.

Standardization itself is an activity aimed at achieving the best possible product against its functional purpose. Metrology is the science dealing with measurements in all scientific and technical fields. In fact, metrology, standardization and certification are the main pillars a consumer rights protection rests upon.

Please have again my sincere congratulations on the occasion of the professional holiday – the Day of standardization and metrology workers! I wish you a sound health, joy, success in all your endeavours, peace and harmony, new achievements and welfare to your families, as well as inexhaustible energy and inspiration in your important job!
