ISO 213 accelerates standards development with meeting in CERN, Geneva
Richard Leach attended the ISO 213 working group 16 (surface texture) meeting in CERN, Geneva from 6 – 7 February 2019. The committee has a number of standards revisions and new developments underway, including: 1. Revisions of the ISO 25178 parts 2 and 3 on parameters, 2. Harmonisation of the existing profile and areal standards into the ISO 21920 series and 3. The new areal calibration standards (based on work by Richard and his team at NPL) for areal instruments (part 600 on metrological characteristics is now FDIS and part 700 on calibration is a new work item). Richard presented the work of Luke Todhunter (with Digital Surf and NPL) on mathematical software measurement standards. Many of the committee were also treated to a rare visit to the ATLAS detector whilst it is under refurbishment.
