Application of module B:  EU-type examination Under directive 2014/32/EU (MID) or directive 2014/31/EU (NAWID)


May 2007 
Issue 1



This guide is one of those which complete the general guide on the assessment and operation of notified bodies performing conformity assessment in application of the Measuring Instrument Directive (MID) and the Non-Automatic weighing instruments Directive (NAWID).   

Several guides have been established for the detailed application of some modules of MID and the NAWID, see the WELMEC website. These guides should not be read without taking into consideration all relevant aspects in all the guides related to a module.   

This guide is intended to provide guidance to all those concerned with the application of module B, EU-type examination, of the Directive 2014/32/EU and Directive 2014/31/EU.  

This Guide covers both directives, the MID and the NAWID, although small differences exist in the text of Module B of the MID compared with the text in the NAWID.  Also, the numbering of the articles is not the same.  

For this guide the text and numbering of the articles of the MID is used. In Annex 3 of this guide a table is given with the correct text and numbering of Module B of the MID and the NAWID which also highlights the differences between these two texts. 

If the documents mention measuring instruments than both NAWI and MI under the MID is meant.
