HCMC – Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) experts are gathering in Hanoi on Monday to update local experts on international guidelines on uncertainty measurement and introduce practices and methods of calculating uncertainty measurement for conformity assessment.

The seminar, dubbed Uncertainty Measurement, follows a similar one in HCMC last Thursday, and is part of the JICA Project for Strengthening the System and Operation on Standard and Conformance jointly held by JICA and Vietnam’s Directorate for Standards, Metrology and Quality.

The concept of “Measurement Uncertainty” has been developed and accepted widely to demonstrate reliability of measurement results. Accordingly, conformity assessment activities, testing, inspection and product certification need the reliability of measurement results generally, and they have been the most important driving force to develop how to estimate the measurement uncertainty.

Measurement result is considered as complete with an attached quantitative report on measurement uncertainty to decide whether the result is satisfactory for the desired objectives and suitable with other result or not, said the organizers in a statement.

Norio Ishizaki, Chief Advisor of the JICA Project, said the project, which started in November 2009 and is due to end in April 2013, aims at improving the quality of electrical and electronic equipment manufactured in Vietnam. It is also meant to ensure the consumer’s safety by strengthening the capability of standards, regulations, accreditation, certification and testing in the field of electronics and electrical equipment.

Other activities of the project include sending people to Japan for training courses, inviting Japanese experts to Vietnam for lecturing, and provide testing equipment for 13 products of electric and electronic products, with the total cost of some US$2.6 million.
