Measurement Processes Level 3

Revision: May 2003

Aim and objectives:

The Measurement Processes (Level 3) National Occupational Standards (NOS) define the expected level of performance, knowledge, understanding and behaviour an individual must achieve when carrying inspecting and verifying metering systems. The standards will act as benchmarks for assessing and monitoring on the job competence.

Target audience:

The standards have been designed for individuals working as technicians maintaining oil and gas metering equipment.


The standards form part of Level 3 SVQ Measurement Processes

Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) provide recognition of an individual’s ability to work in real work conditions. Quality assured certificates of competence for SVQs are issued by Awarding Bodies / Organisations.

The SVQ Measurement Process Level 3 is jointly awarded by SQA and OPITO.


Organisations implementing SVQs should refer to the Oil and Gas Industry Competence Assessment and Verification Guidelines. Organisations implementing the SVQ must comply with the OPITO Assessment and Verification Strategy for Upstream Oil and Gas SVQs. Organisations should also refer to the relevant Awarding Body / Organisation guides.

The full and individual standards/units are available to view and download.
