The article discusses the highlights of 11th International Symposium on Biological and Environmental Reference Materials (BERM11) which was held from October 29 to November 2, 2007 at the Tsukuba International Congresss Center EPOCHAL in Tsukuba, Japan. The conference reflected the increasing involvement of the Asia-Pacific region in the development of certified reference materials. It was hosted by the National Metrology Institute of Japan (NIMJ). It was the first event on metrology in chemistry since the establishment of NIMJ in 2001.
