EU Technical standards for medium accuracy weights

    EU Technical standards for medium accuracy weights In order to be marketed in the European Union (EU) medium accuracy rectangular bar and cylindrical weights must comply with the provisions laid down in Directive 71/317/CEE (OJ L-202 06/09/1971).

    Product Scope

    The provisions of the Directive apply to medium accuracy weights of the following nominal values:

    ; Rectangular bar weights of 5,10,20 and 50 Kg.

    ; Cylindrical weights of 1,2,5,10,20,50,100,500 g and 1,2,5 and 10 Kg.

    Technical Requirements

    The Directive establishes specific technical requirements for each type of weight referring to: ; Shape, constituent material and method of manufacture

    ; Adjustment cavity

    ; Markings and distinctive symbols

    ; Indication of the nominal value of the weight

    ; Dimensions and tolerances

    ; Maximum permissible errors

    ; Surface finish

    Conformity Assessment

    The conformity assessment procedure is required to certify that products comply with the technical requirements laid down in the Directive and thus they are fit to be placed on the market.

    Weights are subject to an “EEC Initial Verification Procedure” according to the provisions laid down in Directive 71/316/EEC (OJ L-202 06/09/1971).

    The “EEC Initial Verification” constitutes the examination of a new or reconditioned instrument and the confirmation of its conformity to the technical requirements.

    Manufacturers or authorised representatives must submit applications for verification to the National Authorities of the Member State where the product is intended to be marketed.

EEC Initial Verification Mark

    The "EEC Initial Verification Mark", described in Directive 71/316/EEC (OJ L-202 06/09/1971), certifies compliance with the technical requirements.

    The mark shall be stamped on the lead seal of the adjustment cavity, and be composed of:

; A stylised letter “e” containing:

    o in the upper half the distinguishing capital letter of the state where the original

    check is carried out together, where necessary with one or two figures identifying

    a territorial or administrative subdivision

    o in the lower half, the identification number of the verifying agent office ; The last two digits of the year of the verification, in a hexagon
