The mission of the National Metrology Institute of South Africa (NMISA) is to provide the South African industry and environmental, health and safety sectors with fit-for-purpose measurement standards and measurements. This is achieved by keeping and maintaining the national measurement standards and units to an acceptable international standard, and by disseminating traceability to the South African industry.

The Institute's mandate is to develop and maintain primary and secondary standards (chemical and physical quantities) for South Africa, and compare those standards to international standards, in order to determine their equivalence and ensure global comparability. These standards are disseminated to the South African industry via a range of services and products and, in the event of a measurement dispute, reference analyses are provided to ensure conformity.
