If you use meters, measuring systems or equipment as settlement basis for purchases or other legal transactions, you are liable to ensure that your measuring instrument is legally controlled.

Verification of measuring instruments is an important parameter in regards to transactions

When using meters or measuring equipment such as weights and scales for purchases, sales or any other kind of transactions between you and your customer, you are liable to ensure that the measuring instrument is legally type approved and verified.

As owner of the equipment, you are responsible for ensuring that the instrument is type approved and verified.

When your measuring instrument has been verified, it can be legally used for transactions, and both you and your customer can be sure that the transaction is based on correct measurements.

Verification of measuring instruments must be in compliance with the legislation

A verification ensures that your measuring instruments comply with the current legal requirements for type approval and with the requirements for maximum permissible error and measuring tolerances in general.

You must ensure that initial verification has been performed prior to putting your measuring instrument in use, and you must ensure that re-verification is performed subsequently. How often you need a re-verification depends on the type of your measuring instrument.

Furthermore, your instrument must be re-verified: 

  • if the sealing breaks 
  • in case of 
    structural changes to the measuring instrument 
  • if the measuring instrument no longer complies with the applied tolerances.
