Products, which are covered by these directives (MID & NAWID), must undergo an assessment before the manufacturer can issue a declaration of conformity and mark the measuring instrument according to the directive.
Measuring equipment covered by the MID shall comply with the requirements of Directive No. 2014/32/EU. Measuring equipment covered by the NAWI shall comply with the requirements of Directive No. 2014/31/EU.

Certification of scales and other weighing instruments
In Europe non-automatic weighing instrument (NAWI) intended to be used for legal transactions or medical treatment shall have an EU Type Examination Certificate (EU TEC) according to EU Directive 2014/31/EU before being placed on the market.
Likewise an automatic weighing instrument (AWI) intended to be used for legal transactions shall have an EU Type Examination Certificate (EU TEC) according to EU directive 2014/32/EU before being placed on the market.
Automatic weighing instruments for weighing of vehicles in motion (WIM) is still under national regulation. FORCE Technology’s test reports, which are issued according to WELMEC agreement of recognition of test report and OIML R134, are accepted by the other European countries.
For type examination and type testing we use the modular approach when possible in order to minimise the amount of testing and at the same time allowing an flexible solution using the Compatibility of Modules scheme.
FORCE Certification A/S is also issuing authority of OIML Certificates of Conformity for the following OIML recommendations:
R50, R51, R60, R61, R76, R106, R107, R129, R134 and R139.
