WELMEC 5.3 Issue 1 (2011)
Risk Assessment Guide for Market Surveillance: Weigh and Measuring Instruments
The focus of this document is on the risk assessment of weighing and measuring instruments in the context of market surveillance.
The rationale behind this document is the need for more selective market surveillance, as a result of the increasingly limited resources of the WELMEC Member States. Another reason for such a document is the requirement in Art.19, 1 of REGULATION (EC) No 765/2008 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 9 July 2008 setting out the requirements for accreditation and market surveillance relating to the marketing of products and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 339/93.
