The objectives of the CALIDENA awareness workshop were:

  • Informing interested parties about the CALIDENA process and the new PTB project for the Eastern Partnership countries.
  • Identifying the challenges in the field of quality infrastructure regarding the quality, safety and sustainability of the product.
  • Planning next steps.

Economic operators in the electronic sector voiced, during the workshop, the common problems faced by the industry, such as: testing electromagnetic compatibility, temperature range, humidity, fire safety, IP54, noise, etc. At the same time, the business environment also came up with some solutions to improve services.

The representatives of the State Institutions came up with a series of solutions to the mentioned problems, but also with proposals, on how they could collaborate with the private sector in order to improve metrology, certification, calibration, etc. services.

The association together with the PTB team from Moldova will continue to work on this topic.
