VersionLanguagesComments
May 2011, Issue 1EN


GUIDE SUMMARY:
 

Annex F of MID describes conformity assessment procedures, where a notified body chosen by the manufacturer carries out the appropriate examinations and tests, or have them carried out, to check the conformity of the instruments with the type as described in the EC-type examination certificate and the appropriate requirements of this Directive. Annex F1 of MID describes conformity assessment procedures, where a notified body carries out the appropriate examinations and tests, or have them carried out, to check the conformity of the instruments with the appropriate requirements of this Directive. Verification can be done by examination and testing of every instrument in accordance with MID Annex F, section 4 or Annex F1, section 6 or by statistical verification in accordance with MID Annex F, point 5 or Annex F1, point 7.

Typical applications for statistical verification are material measures (Annex MI-008) or electronic electricity meters (Annex MI-003). Statistical verification is based on sampling plans agreed between notified bodies and manufacturers taking into account the provisions given in MID, Annex F or F1.

This Guide is intended to support notified bodies when creating suitable sampling plans for conformity assessment acc. to Annex F and F1., statistical methods can also be used for Annexes A1  or for Annexes D, D1, E, E1, H and H1 .

The guide provides a practicable tool for the application of already existing documents and standards (in particular ISO 2859) with regard to MID conditions.

This Guide is intended to improve understanding and applicability of standards for non-professionals and does make no claim to be complete.
