 National Physical Laboratory, UK - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the national measurement standards laboratory for the United Kingdom, based at Bushy Park in Teddington in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
It is the largest applied physics organisation in the UK, and has a role similar to that of NIST in the United States.
NPL cooperates with professional networks such as those of the IEE to support scientists and engineers concerned with areas of work in which it has expertise.

In 1898 a committee of inquiry under Lord Rayleigh recommended the establishment of a National Physical Laboratory under the control of the Royal Society.
It was to be an institution "for standardizing and verifying instruments, for testing materials, and for the determination of physical constants." It was first established at Kew Observatory in 1900 and was formally opened in a new acommodation at Teddington in 1902.

 CESIUM ATOMIC CLOCKS
Between 1953 and 1955, L. Essen and J.V.L. Parry of the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in Teddington, England built a cesium atomic clock.
Examples are the NIST-7 standard at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, CO and the atomic fountains at NIST, Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany, the Paris Observatory, France, and USNO.
Cesium clocks are of two general kinds: a "laboratory (or primary) standard" about as large as a railroad flatcar and a "commercial (or secondary) standard" about as large as a suitcase.

 UK National Physical Laboratories, Donald Davies
Donald Davies and his colleagues at the UK National Physical Laboratory independently discovered the idea of packet switching, and later developed a smaller scale packet-switched version of the ARPANET.
In 1965, while Donald Davies was Superintendent of the National Physical Lab (NPL) in Britain, he proposed development of a country wide packet communications network.
It was replaced with an improved network called the Mark II in 1973, and remained in operation until 1986, but it never had the funding to develop on the scale of the ARPANET.

 Certification of Stage Micrometers Offered by SPI Supplies
For a particular stage micrometer to be "certified", some number of individual measurements are made at a laboratory that has been accredited to do such metrology testing.
In this case, the NPL is the top agency in the UK and they have accredited UKAS laboratories to do this same type of metrology testing.
The certification costs to SPI are much higher when the testing is done at NPL, presumably because of their much higher overhead and infrastructure costs, therefore the difference in the pricing.
