Harmonising pre-pack verification tests

Many products are generated by continuous manufacturing processes. Ensuring that packs conform to producer’s or customer’s requirements relies on verifying the contents of products against specification. This is performed by automatic weighing instruments without human intervention. Products are sent along constantly moving con...

Support for Balkan mammography services

In Europe 1 in 8 women develop breast cancer before the age of 85, and early diagnosis increases survival chances. National x-ray screening programmes are being introduced throughout the EU, underpinned by a measurement traceability hierarchy to ensure the quality of the services provided. This includes checking that EU safety ...

Detecting contaminants in soil

Land reclaimation and redevelpment is converting old industrial sites for new uses such as housing. Ensuring that no lingering contamination remains and that any found is not redistributed to other locations is becoming increasingly important. Construction companies are required to conduct detailed soil analyses to identify pol...

Enforcing vehicle weight restrictions

Damage to rural bridges throughout the EU is being caused by lorries carrying heavy loads that may far exceed their design criteria. For example, in Estonia there is increasing concern over damage to the road infrastructure due to heavy lorries carrying felled trees from forests to saw-mills on country roads. Laws are in force ...

Testing for safer suspension systems

Many civil engineering and transportation projects require devices that can dampen vibrations and absorb shocks. Spring mechanisms can be used for this purpose and are commonly found in applications ranging from high-rise buildings to car suspension systems. Railway carriages, for example, have spring damper systems placed betw...

Demonstrating building material safety

The safety and stability of buildings, bridges, and wind turbines relies on having confidence in the strength of the construction materials used. At the same time, materials are subject to cost and design constraints, which introduce the need for performance testing using similar loads to those likely to be experienced in-servi...
