The National Laboratory for Mass

RISE is Sweden's NMI (National Metrology Institute) and, according to the Swedish constitution, is responsible for the central measurement quantities in the International System of Units, SI.

The main task of The National Laboratory for Mass is to create traceability in Sweden for all weighings carried out in, for example, industry, food and the pharmaceutical industry. Traceability is needed for products to be reliable and contain the right amount of food and medicine etc.

We carry out research to generate traceability according to the new definition of mass. We are involved in the development of a new primary balance, called Wattbalance or Kibblebalance

Accordingly, RISE also offer calibration of weights according to the best international requirements level E1 (OIML R 111)
