What Is CE Marking For Measuring Instruments & What Are Its Impact On Instrument Safety & Performance?
The Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) is a directive issued by the European Union that sets out uniform requirements for the placing on the market and putting into service measuring instruments. The MID covers all stages of the product’s life cycle, including product design, manufacture, verification, and installation. The MID is directly applicable in all EU Member States, and the Member States are responsible for its implementation.
The MID applies to all measuring instruments, regardless of their field of application, such as electrical and electronic measuring instruments, equipment, and instruments for the measurement of radiation, as well as laboratory equipment and calibration equipment. The MID does not apply to measure instruments in life-critical medical devices, in-vitro diagnostics, and equipment for mass and volume measurement.
The MID also does not apply to measuring instruments intended for use in civil aviation and navigation, including their components, or to equipment for the calibration of measuring instruments, which are covered by other Union harmonization legislation.
The MID requires manufacturers, importers, and users of measuring instruments to take the necessary measures to ensure that their measuring instruments conform with the applicable requirements. The main objectives of the MID 2014/32/EU directive are:
- To ensure the free movement of measuring instruments within the EU, by removing all technical barriers to trade;
- To ensure that the measuring instruments on the EU market are safe, reliable, and meet the essential requirements;
- To ensure that the measuring instruments on the EU market do not mislead users.
The Role of Our Accredited Conformity Assessment Bodies In CE Marking For Measuring Instruments
The new law of CE Marking For Measuring Instruments has introduced stricter requirements for measuring instruments suppliers and users including:
- Accreditation of conformity assessment bodies (CABs)
- A requirement for all measuring devices to be tested and certified before being placed on the market;
- A requirement for CABs to conduct audits, inspections, and tests on measuring instruments;
- A requirement that measurements made by metrology laboratories must be traceable; and
- A ban on non-compliant measuring instruments being sold in the EU.
The role of our conformity assessment bodies is an important part of the EU product harmonization system. Our responsibility is to help ensure that products comply with EU legislation and standards, and to check that companies produce safe and effective products. We do this by checking products against the technical specifications laid down in EU legislation and standards.
However, our responsibilities are not just limited to checking whether a product meets its technical specifications; it also includes assessing the risk that a product poses to consumers, producers, workers, and others around it. This is done by comparing the results of tests carried out on a product with those expected under EU legislation or international standards.
