The Yearbook contains a wealth of useful information, wide-ranging and specific, for those in the instrument engineering field - users, specifiers and providers alike. It is essentially a practical source of reference to help meet the busy professionals working needs - professional, technical and commercial.
The Institute of Measurement and Control, its role and objectives, its membership grades and entry requirements, and its activities. A wider picture is provided of the engineering profession, the registration of engineers, and a list of UK engineering institutions. This is followed by information on education and training requirements - including lists of InstMC-accredited courses.
In addition there is information on the Companion Company Scheme which provides services with direct access to the InstMC's broad range of learned society facilities and benefits.
Technical Standards Information
An extensive and newly updated list of national, international and other standards, codes of practice, specifications, related publications, etc, is provided on pages. Aided by a detailed subject index, these provide valuable starting points in identifying relevant technical standards and the sources of such documents, together with a list of organisations from where they can be obtained.
Products and Services Information
An extensive and well-organised directory provides quick and easy access to wide ranging sources of products and services important to those concerned with measurement, control, automation and instrumentation. The alphabetical index of categories provides quick access to the products and services as required, together with an alphabetical list of suppliers' contact details.
Often the only starting point is the name of a foreign manufacturer or a trade name. These starting points are also catered for. A list of UK agents and distributors, categorised alphabetically by product and foreign manufacturer. Similarly a list of relevant trade names and the manufacturers concerned. All that remains to be done then is to look up the contact details.
