EU Technical standards for above medium accuracy weights

    EU Technical standards for above medium accuracy weights

    In order to be marketed in the European Union (EU) above-medium accuracy weights must comply with the provisions laid down in Directive 74/148/CEE (OJ L-084 28/03/1974). Product Scope

    This Directive concerns weights of above-medium accuracy the nominal value of which is equal to 1 mg or more and less than or equal to 50 kg. Metric carat weights and special weights covered by other directives are excluded of compliance with the provisions of this Directive .

    Technical Requirements

    The technical requirements established in the Directive refer to:

    ; Nominal values of the weights

    ; Conventional mass

    ; Maximum permissible errors

    ; Shape

    ; Constituents of the weights

    ; Surface state

    ; Adjustment material

    ; Inscriptions

    ; Presentation

    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
