Last Wednesday 6 November 2019 , CITA hosted in Brussels its new workshop titled: “New Particle Number Measurements for vehicle inspection”.
More than 100 participants got together to hear our experts on the latest developments in measuring particle number (PN) during vehicle inspection and roadside inspections.
In the first part of the event, after an introduction of the CITA President – Mr Müller, was made an overview on PN measurement: Mrs S. Limbeck (BASt), Mr P. Buekendhoudt (Vice President of Technical Affairs, CITA and Project & Innovation Manager, GOCA Vlaanderen) Mr A. van Lee (PTI Advisor, RDW) talked about their own experiences on the matter in their respective countries.
