Conformity of Length Measuring Machines

Working Group 5.45


Length measuring machines

In many cases, trade and industry make up accounts on the basis of length measurements or their combinations (area, volume) on commodities of the most different kind. In these cases, the measuring instruments must have been approved for verification or their conformity must have been certified in accordance with Directive 2004/22/EC. The testing and research activities of the Working group are focussed on these conformity assessments or approval procedures in accordance with the Verification Act for log wood and choirometers.
