What are the objectives of the Plan to develop national measurement standards until 2030 in Vietnam? – Minh Hai (Ninh Thuan)

Regarding this issue, LawNet would like to answer as follows:

On November 24, 2023, the Prime Minister issued Decision 1488/QD-TTg approving the "Plan for developing national measurement standards until 2030".

Objectives of the Plan to develop national measurement standards until 2030 in Vietnam

Specifically, the items of the National Measurement Standards Development Plan to 2030 are specifically stated as follows:

* General objective

Develop national measurement standards in a modern direction, reaching the level of advanced countries in the region to meet state management requirements on measurement in the new period, promoting international economic integration, supporting businesses to improve the quality of products and goods to serve the domestic and export markets, contributing to promoting socio-economic development, and ensuring the national defense and security of the country.

* Detailed objectives

(1) Period 2024 - 2025:

- Maintain, preserve, and use 48 national measurement standards of 29 quantities approved according to the National Measurement Standards Development Plan to 2020 issued with Decision 1361/QD-TTg in 2013.

- Investing in new development, adding 08 measurement standards of 07 quantities, specifically:

+ 02 measurement standards belonging to 02 basic quantities: thermodynamic temperature, quantity of substance.

+ 06 measurement standards belonging to 05 derived quantities: 02 measurement standards: pressure, gas humidity, capacitance, inductance, and air kerma (for photons).

(2) Period 2026–2030:

- Maintain, preserve, and use national measurement standards for quantities approved by competent authorities.

- Invest in upgrading and expanding the measurement range and improving the level of the 09 national measurement standards for the 08 approved quantities, specifically:

+ 01 measurement standard belonging to 01 basic quantity: electric current.

+ 08 measurement standards belonging to 07 derived quantities: 02 measurement standards: liquid volume flow, liquid mass flow, voltage, resistance, power, electricity, and high frequency attenuation.

- Invest in new development, adding 36 measurement standards for 23 quantities, specifically:

+ 09 measurement standards belonging to 03 basic quantities: 03 measurement standards for Length, 02 measurement standards for thermodynamic temperature, 04 measurement standards for quantity of substances.

+ 27 measurement standards of 20 derived quantities: Force, torque, pH, conductivity, gas humidity, alternating current, Magnetic field, High-frequency power, Field strength, sound pressure level, 04 vibration measurement standards, 03 ultrasonic measurement standards, Radiated power, diffuse reflectance spectrum, radiant yield, spectral response, radius of curvature, Absorbed dose (for photons), 03 measurement standards: dose equivalent (for photons, neutrons, and beta), radioactive activity standards.

List of national measurement standards until 2030 detailed in the Appendix attached to Decision 1488/QD-TTg.

05 tasks in the Plan to develop national measurement standards until 2030 in Vietnam

The main tasks and solutions in the National Measurement Standards Development Plan for 2030 are as follows:

(1) Focus and prioritize resources to deploy and develop national measurement standards approved in Decision 1488/QD-TTg.

(2) Develop national measurement standards that meet the following requirements:

- Using advanced and modern technology suitable for maintenance, preservation, and use conditions in Vietnam; ensure standard qualifications equivalent to those of advanced countries in the ASEAN region.

- Achieving the required accuracy and measuring range equivalent to the measurement specifications of primary or secondary standards serves as the national measurement standard for each respective measurement field, ensuring the standard's alignment with the International System of Units (SI) and completion on time.

- Synchronization between the national measurement standard equipped with transmission equipment and auxiliary equipment, ensuring that the national measurement standard is derived from the main standard in use in the socio-economic, security, and defense sectors, ensuring completion on time.

(3) Staff training

Organize training and fostering activities domestically and internationally to improve professional qualifications for staff, directly implementing, establishing, maintaining, preserving, and using national measurement standards at the Ministry of Science and Technology, ministries, agencies, and localities.

(4) Maintain, preserve, and use national measurement standards

- Ensure the accuracy and alignment of national measurement standards with the International System of Units (SI).

- Ensure physical conditions (premises, workshops, laboratory environment, etc.) in accordance with the requirements of maintaining, preserving, and using the national measurement standard system. Establish, update, and preserve records and documents related to national measurement standards.

- Use national measurement standards to serve scientific and technological research at all levels; the production and calibration of measurement standards; and the quality standards of ministries, branches, and localities.

- Unify standard transmission activities from national measurement standards to the main standards of ministries, branches, and localities.

- Implement the inter-departmental comparison program on measurement at international and national levels.

(5) International cooperation

- Appoint staff to participate in interdepartmental comparison programs on measurement at the international level, technical seminars on measurement of international measurement organizations, and technical committees and technical subcommittees on measurement of international and regional measurement organizations such as: International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML), the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM), the Asia-Pacific Legal Metrology Foundation (APLMF), the Asia-Pacific Metrology Program (APMP),...

Actively participate in joint research projects, participate in measurement comparisons at the international level for measurement fields, and continue to participate in the Global Mutual Recognition Agreement on Measurement (CIPM-MRA).

- Effectively implement bilateral and multilateral projects on developing national measurement standards to meet the requirements of international integration in measurement.

More details can be found in Decision 1488/QD-TTg, which takes effect from the date of signing.
