Budgetary measure: Creation of National Primary Standard for Length Measurement and Measurement of Time and Frequency in Mongolia
Implementation period: 2011-2013

Budget for the year 2013: 6 800 000 CZK
An excellent cooperation between national and multinational institutions and international organisations of scientists, technicians and metrology officials ensures that measurements are made well and consistently throughout the world.
This cooperation also includes the assistance provided by the Czech Republic to Mongolia. As part of the project which is being realised by the Czech Office for Standards, Metrology and Testing, instruments are provided to the Mongolian Agency for Standardisation and Metrology to help create the “Mongolian clock” and the “Mongolian metric scale”. The project also includes training of Mongolian experts by Czechs as well as provisions of additional equipment that is necessary for measuring time and lengths in Mongolia.
The “Mongolian clock” – the national standard for measuring time, and the “Mongolian metric scale” – the national standard for measuring lengths, serve primarily to verify the accuracy of clocks (time meters) and metric scales (tools for measuring lengths) in Mongolia and, in connection with these, the accuracy of measuring additional quantities such as area, volume, the degrees of an angle, speed, acceleration, density, force, concentration, brightness, frequency, pressure, power, output, tension, resistance, conductivity and intensity.
The top accuracy of measurement at the Mongolian Agency for Standardisation and Metrology, which is ensured by both instruments and experts in the established manner, will gradually improve the level of more common measuring devices and their users. This will have an impact on the quality of products (nuts and bolts will fit properly), on credibility in commerce (petrol pumps will provide accurate readings), on justice (police speed radars will be precise) and on international relations (the amount of imported petroleum).
