Several new services were highlighted in particular by NMi during the InterWEIGHING 2014 exhibition. One of these was the combined NTEP/OIML test. We have gained a lot of knowledge and experience in recent years of the OIML Mutual Acceptance Arrangement (OIML MAA). This means we can assist suppliers of Load Cells who have their eye on the US market to comply with the National Type Evaluation Program requirements. When doing business in a particular part of the world, manufacturers tend to concentrate on securing one type certificate only. For this reason, they may be unaware of the combination test which NMi can offer its customers. By opting for conformity with both the NTEP and OIML programs, they stand to reach a much larger market for a similar outlay.
