    Through the world, the tendency to miniaturize all objects is spread widely. Concerning liquid flow metering, several manufacturers are already industrializing instruments specific for small flows. On a metrological point of view, few National Metrological Institutes (NMI) are able to calibrate flowmeters with liquid at flow rate smaller than 1 l.h-1 (2,8.10-7 m3.s-1). During the last five years, LNECETIAT (French NMI) was on progress to design and build a new calibration facility to ensure traceability to the international system of units. This paper will present the concepts and the first results obtained during the validation stage of this new standard.
