Samodia participates in the 14th Annual Legal Metrology Day in Algeria

The Algerian National Office of Legal Metrology (ONML) celebrated its 14th Annual Legal Metrology Day at the Hilton hotel in Algiers on 7th October in the presence of the Minister for Industry Mr. Mohammed Benmeradi.

Samodia, an Algerian technology and services company dedicated to driver and vehicle managment, presented a selection of equipment from the VDO automotive range which has dramatically improved driver and road safety in many countries around the world. As well as decreasing the number of road accidents, the installation of VDO equipment ensures more efficient driving which results in lower fuel, maintenance and repair costs.

The ONML stressed that due to the increasing number of different calibration systems within the transport industry, it has become urgent to use the latest means of analysis.  Defective or inaccurate measurement equipment can cause grave consequences for the safety of persons. The Minister explained that Metrology allows the concerned bodies to have reliable measurement equipment in order to fight against road accidents.  To this end, he called on the Management of National Safety (DGSN), the national police and the National Office of Metrology (ONML) to coordinate their efforts and put into place a national program to prevent road accidents..
