The Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) provides for market access in Europe for industrial oil and gas meters and complete measuring installations used for commercial purposes. It describes the requirements that must be met in order for you to market your measuring instruments or installations in Europe. With regard to market access outside Europe and other additional customer requirements, we test your measuring instruments or installations for compliance with EN standards, IEC standards and OIML recommendations.
We can use the OIML certificate and report all over the world thanks to NMi’s excellent reputation in the international market.
European market access – MID
Are you keen to get into the European market? An MID type examination certificate gives you immediate access to all 28 countries of the European Union, the 4 EFTA countries and Turkey. Since the introduction of the MID regulations, NMi has issued hundreds of certificates. As a result, NMi has extensive experience with the different options. NMi can also combine flow meter testing with the testing of components used for both gas and liquid measurements.
By participating in international working groups such as WELMEC, OIML and EN and various standards committees, NMi knows all the latest legislative developments. We update you on plans to introduce new requirements, enabling you to incorporate in the test plan and put a future-proof product on the market.
Market access outside Europe
NMi’s worldwide reputation ensures widespread acceptance of its test reports and easy market access to most countries in the world. For market access outside Europe, NMi tests for compliance with international standards (EN and OIML). By combining these tests directly with the MID test plan, the type examination process is executed efficiently and your product can be launched on the global market quickly. The overview shows you which standards are applicable. NMi also provides opportunities for international market access for liquid level gauges.
