1) The verification procedure. This has now changed and it is possible to change the verification procedure. 
i) The Discrimination test is no longer necessary. This can be removed from your verification procedure.

2) The Declaration of Conformity
This must now be in the format outlined in Annex IV of the Directive 2014/31. This must be done by April 19th 2016. Click  for a copy of the annex of the NAWI Directive and a draft certificate that I have completed
3) Legal metrology markings
These must be in a new format by April 19th 2016 as shown on this document. 
In the space after the M must be the last two digits of the year on which the metrology marks was affixed. 
The numbers after the rectangle must be the identification number of the notified body involved in the production control phase. This will be the same number as you presently use for example 0126 for the NMRO and 0120 for SGS.
