Nowadays, digital solutions are dominant in almost all industry related activities and applications, especially in the metrology domain. Digital Calibration Certificates (DCCs) will soon replace both paper and electronic calibration certificates. This is due to the fact that electronic files can be communicated instantly and securely to the customer and are machine readable. However, DCCs require a digital security and software infrastructure to fulfill the current ‘analogue’ processes of authentication and validation that secures traceability of the measurements. In this work, we present the efforts at SASO-NMCC of Saudi Arabia towards modifying its work processes for replacing analog calibration certificates with the modern DCCs. A smart e-infrastructure for issuing DCCs is proposed. The system communicates with customers and national standards communities via metrology clouds (e.g. SASO Cloud and GULFMET cloud). Our proposed system is also able to be compatible with recent artificial intelligence applications, the Internet of Things (IoT) and future completely digital metrology.
