National Measurement Office extend scope of accreditation to better support manufacturers of Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments
National Measurement Office (UK) - The National Measurement Office (NMO) Certification Services have successfully been approved by UKAS for the testing of Class I & II Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments to the requirements of the Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments (NAWI) Directive [2009/23/EC] and to the International Organization of Legal Metrology [OIML] Recommendation R76.

NMO already carries out conformity evaluation of Class III & IIII NAWI’s to Directive [2009/23/EC], by testing to: BS EN 45501:1992, and the OIML Recommendation. Class III & IIII instruments are used for example; in retail sales, as seen in many supermarkets for weighing groceries, whereas Class I & II instruments are employed for higher accuracy purposes, for example; used by metrology institutions, pharmaceutical and research laboratories.

The UKAS assessment, which took place on the 22nd May, also included an extension scope to the include Gas Meters (SI 2006/2647) and Active Electrical Energy Meters (SI 2006/1679) EC Type Examination under Annex B of the Measuring Instruments directive [MID] (2004/22/EC). UKAS have formally recommended to the Secretary of State that NMO be appointed as a Notified Body for these instruments.

These extensions to scope give NMO an improved range of accredited services, meaning NMO can better support business and industry. This secures and confirms NMO’s capabilities as one the leading notified bodies.
