These are the European Directives that cover both non-automatic and automatic weighing instruments. They are in the process of being reviewed against the background of a process known as the New Legislative Framework. This is a set of changes that it is intended will modernise the CE marking requirements, introducing better requirements for market surveillance, improve confidence in accreditation processes and conformity assessment procedures, and clarifies many definitions so that they will be identical across all CE marking legislation. This is at an early stage and CECIP are actively involved in ensuring the views of all European manufacturers are being heard. More information on this can be found on the website of the European Union.
