Important information

A single OIML Certification System (OIML-CS) from 1 January 2018

At its meeting in October 2016, the International Committee of Legal Metrology (CIML) decided that the existing OIML Certification Systems, i.e. the Mutual Acceptance Arrangement (MAA) and the OIML Basic Certificate System, will cease on 31 December 2017 and will be replaced by a Single OIML Certification System (OIML-CS) on 1 January 2018. The consequence is that after 1 January 2018 both OIML MAA Certificates and Basic Certificates will no longer be issued – instead, OIML-CS Certificates will be issued.

This will affect all stakeholders: manufacturers, Issuing Participants and Utilizers under the MAA, Issuing Authorities under the Basic System and users of OIML MAA and Basic Certificates. Therefore a Seminar on the new OIML-CS will be held in conjunction with the 52nd CIML Meeting on 9 October 2017.
