Guide for modular approach and testing of PCs and other digital peripheral devices (Non-automatic Weighing Instruments)

September 2000, issue 2ENDEFRRS


The European Standard on NAWI: EN 45501 contains the metrological and technical requirements for NAWI subject to legal metrological control that provide presumption of conformity to the essential requirements of Directive 90/384/EEC.
EN 45501, which is identical to the OIML recommendation R76 in content, has introduced the concept of modular approach. Subject to agreement between the manufacturer and the notified body for EC type examination, modules may be defined and examined separately (see 8.1 of EN 45501).
