Federal Minister Martin Kocher visited the BEV - Bundesamt für Eich- und Vermessungswesen and got an idea of the extensive tasks, services and activities.
By means of consistent digitization it is now possible to administrate measuring instruments including documents and planning and to query the verification status of a measuring instrument more easily. One just has to scan the QR code. How this is done, you can find here!
In 2022 the BEV - Federal Office of Metrologie and Surveying introduced the much-noticed Katasterservice. The possibilities were enlarged, the charges cancelled.

May 20 is World Metrology Day, commemorating the anniversary of the signing of the Metre Convention in 1875. This treaty provides the basis for a worldwide coherent measurement system that underpins scientific discovery and innovation, industrial manufacturing and international trade, as well as the improvement of the quality of life and the protection of the global environment.
The National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) are responsible for the uniform representation of the SI Units (International System of Units) by means of calibration in Europe. To ensure the mutual international recognition the quality management system in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17025 has to be approved every 5 years. In case of the BEV this took place in March.

There are not enough women working in the fields of technics and physics. But right there they can earn much more than in traditional jobs.

The Girls' Day 2023 was one of these opportunities.
