Type approval of measuring instruments

In order to start using new measuring devices in the Lithuanian market, they have to be included in the Lithuanian State Register of Measuring Instruments.

AB Vilniaus Metrologijos Centras, as the designated body for your measuring instruments, performs:

  • assessment of measuring instrument documentation, and evaluates the conformity of the metrological characteristics of the measuring instrument and the possibility of performing verification of the measuring instrument in Lithuania in accordance with applicable verification methodologies;
  • preparation of a documentation package for type approval of a new measuring instrument, in accordance with the RULES FOR THE LEGAL METROLOGY OF MEASURING INSTRUMENTS.

For devices that are not included in the state register and the scope of legal metrology, inspection is performed and a control report is issued. Our control activities are accredited by the LST EN ISO/IEC 17020 standard.

The control report contains the results and conclusions on compliance or non-compliance with the requirements of the measuring instrument .
