Measuring Instruments

Measuring instruments are essential to ensure accuracy of measurement, notably for transactions by consumers and industry in every-day life.  The Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) covers water metres, gas metres and volume conversion devices, active electrical energy metres, heat metres and their sub-assemblies, measuring systems for continuous and dynamic measurement of quantities of liquids other than water, automatic weighing instruments, taximeters, material measures, dimensional measuring instruments and exhaust gas analysers.

Measuring instruments are covered by Annex II, Chapter IX of the EEA Agreement.

This product sector is the responsibility of the Working Group on Technical Barriers to Trade, assisted by the Expert Group on Measuring Instruments.
