I have a attended a recent CECIP meeting and felt that the following points are important for you to be aware of.
1) The matter of 10v per metre continues to progress. The EU commission have completed the note that they intend to publish with regard to this. It reflects our expectation that instruments will need to meet the requirement of 10v/m for radiated immunity and 10v for conducted immunity where this is applicable. The continued advice to members is that they should ensure that the instruments that they place on the market must meet this requirements by the 1st January 2014.
2) WELMEC are presently reviewing the definition of ” manufacturer” as outlined in the MID and as used in the NAWI Directive. Some of the WELMEC members feel that the manufacturer should be the owner of the type approval document. This definition is very different to the one used in the UK and if accepted would have great bearing on many small businesses who verify weighing equipment but are not the owners of the type approval. We have made our views known to both CECIP and the UK Government who both support our position. As soon as I have any more information I will update you
In the meantime please do to hesitate to give me a call if you would like to disuse these matters further
