Utilizers/Associates and Scopes

A summary of the organizations that are Utilizers and Associates and their scopes can be found here.

The table specifies the scope of OIML Recommendations and the Scheme (A and/or B) for which each organization will accept and utilize OIML type evaluation and test reports, when associated with an OIML Certificate issued by an OIML Issuing Authority, for type approval or recognition in their national or regional metrological controls. The table also specifies any acceptance of OIML type evaluation and test reports issued under the OIML MAA.

In addition, further information regarding conditions on acceptance and any additional national requirements that may apply for the different measuring instrument categories can be found by following the links on the menu to the left.

 

Becoming a Utilizer or Associate

A National Issuing Authority or National Responsible Body in an OIML Member State may apply to become a Utilizer under the OIML-CS. A National Issuing Authority or National Responsible Body in an OIML Corresponding Member country may apply to become an Associate under the OIML-CS.

Utilizers and Associates will sign the Declaration which will commit them in principle to voluntarily accept and utilize OIML type evaluation and test reports, when associated with an OIML Certificate issued by an Issuing Authority, for type approval or recognition in their national or regional metrological controls.

 

Additional National Requirements

Utilizers and Associates may specify Additional National Requirements. These are requirements that are not included in the relevant OIML Recommendation but that are required in order to issue a national/regional type approval. When these are specified the relevant test procedures must also be defined. OIML Issuing Authorities and their associated Test Laboratories can declare which tests they can perform.
