They are initial in the territory of the Republic of Armenia and transfers of their measure to working gages of these sizes are intended for reproduction and storage of measures of units of sizes, and also.

3. National standards are stored by scientific keepers of National authority on metrology.

4. The measure of measurement is recognized national standard National authority on metrology according to the procedure, established by the Government of the Republic of Armenia.
