The objective for this event is to train the participants on Conformity Assessment of Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments (NAWI; based on Directive 2014/31/EU), with a focus on Module “B”. The event will also give attendees an opportunity to exchange experiences for both the harmonised part (before putting instruments in use) and non-harmonised part (e.g. verifications and inspection of instruments in use). 

Who should attend?
Legal metrology experts who perform type approval of NAWI, testing of NAWI modules, market surveillance and inspection of NAWI in use.

Participants are expected to have basic knowledge of the above mentioned legal metrology tasks.
