The National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) has been in the standards
and certification business for over 50 years. Founded in 1948, NSAI core
focus at that time was in Legal Metrology, the requirements for units of
measurement, measurement instrumentation and the procedure of measurement.
In 1968, the adoption of international standards had gained acceptance throughout the world and NSAI became the Standards writings body for Ireland and began offering certification services in the United States.
In 1988 NSAI Inc, a wholly owned US subsidiary of the National Standards Authority of Ireland was established. Today, NSAI manages the US, Canadian and South American operations from its head office located in Nashua, New Hampshire with regional offices located throughout the United States.
