The Zambia Metrology Agency’s Senior Metrologist, Mr. Rhaemie Salima, successfully completed a highly anticipated OIML Training Event (OTE), organised by the International Organisation of Legal Metrology (OIML) in conjunction with the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), and Deutsche Akademie für Metrologie (DAM).
The event centred around the labelling requirements, net content, and control of pre-packaged products based on OIML Recommendations OIML R79:2015 and OIML R87:2016.
Given the escalating international trade in pre-packaged products, adherence to the relevant OIML Recommendations becomes paramount as they have strengthened international trade practises and enhanced metrological capacities in the region and around the globe.
The training event attended by 22 countries worldwide provided comprehensive insights into these harmonised OIML methods, enabling economies like Zambia to “lock-out” non-compliant products from being manufactured or imported into their markets while ensuring the “lock-in” of locally produced goods into the international market, thereby maximising financial returns.
Further, the training event served as a platform for fostering the harmonisation of metrological capacities at a regional level through active collaboration and knowledge exchange. These fruitful discussions are aimed at eliminating technical barriers and adopting good harmonised practises, paving the way for smooth trade practises and strengthening international cooperation.
As a statutory body under the Ministry of Commerce, Trade, and Industry, ZMA plays a critical role in promoting accurate measurements, quality assurance, and compliance with international standards. The Agency’s participation in this training event further solidifies its commitment to advancing metrology expertise and boosting contributions to international trade.
