Scientific metrology and legal metrology are two distinct branches of metrology. They serve different purposes. Scientific metrology is centered around advancing measurement science and precision for research and technological purposes, while legal metrology is focused on ensuring the accuracy and fairness of measurements in commercial and legal contexts to protect consumers and maintain public trust. Both branches are essential for different aspects of society, with scientific metrology providing the foundation for accurate measurements and legal metrology ensuring their proper use in commerce and trade.
