Information document on Software Requirements on the Basis of the Measuring Instruments Directive

May 2005, Issue 2ENRS


This revised document is intended to provide information about the development of software requirements based on the Measuring Instruments Directive. Up to the publication of the MID in April 2004 this guide was used as a basis for national type approval in some European countries. Therefore the responsible Working Group 7 “Software” has decided during its 9th meeting in 2004 not to withdraw the Guide but to keep it as an informative document with updated cross-references to the final MID text and to bring it in line with the new WELMEC Software Guide 7.2.

For software examination and software testing of MID instruments WELMEC 7.1, issue 2, shall not be applied. Instead WELMEC 7.2 is the recommended WELMEC document that should be used for MID conformity assessments of software controlled instruments.

During the 31st WELMEC Committee meeting the Committee agreed to withdraw Guide 7.1, mark it for reference purpose only.

NOTES: This guide is withdrawn and available for reference purposes only.
