Road safety support at GPEC 2016

NMi will exhibit at GPEC 2016, the General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference, from 7 Р9 June 2016 in Leipzig, Germany. GPEC provides an overview of products for internal security for all specialist fields and kinds of equipment in Germany. During the show, we will introduce our services to manufactures of traffic enforcement instruments, the German police and other involved authorities.

Measuring mobility
In order to prevent casualties in traffic, governments tend to look towards enforcement equipment to improve road safety. The police uses various measuring instruments to achieve this goal. New traffic enforcement equipment must meet national regulations. The interpretation of these regulations is daily business for NMi. We are familiar with the latest juridical developments and can perform all possible tests to prove compliance.  From a very early stage of product development, we offer design reviews to predict whether certification will be successful.

NMi tests all police measurement instruments, including section control systems, breath analyzers, motorbike roller test benches and speed meters. The instruments are subjected to a variety of required lab tests, such as exposure to external radiation and extreme temperature variations, in order to determine whether this affects the measurement results. As appropriate to the circumstances, additional tests are conducted on race circuits and various public road test locations. An NMi certificate or test report is accepted as a basis for approval without further testing by multiple countries around the world.

Independent proof of accurate measurement
Since we are an independent party, our knowledge is regularly called on by authorities in Europe and beyond. NMi offers support with respect to the legal burden of proof and an enforcement policy, for example when setting up a legislative system for enforcement or training and coaching during implementation. Helping law-enforcement authorities to enhance road safety in a more effective way is one of our specialties.

See you in hall 2 of the Leipzig Trade Fair Centre at booth E31.
