The National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO) is looking for any further views from the UK in relation to an amendment to an International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) technical working document for dimensional measuring instruments (R129). The UK views will then be sent to the Australian secretariat of OIML TC7/SC5.
The NMRO is the UK participating member of R129 and is responsible for collecting the UK views on proposed amendments to the technical working document for dimensional measuring instruments.
The changes to the draft are as follows:
layout of the document updated in line with the draft general requirements for measuring instruments -
environmental conditions (OIML D11) (2013)
surge tests added to the document consistent with draft OIML D11 (2013)
the minimum dimension amended to 10d from 5d
test procedures revised to be consistent with draft OIML D11 (2013) document
uncertainty associated with error in the indication of measurement - please refer to Secretariat’s note at the end of clause 4.1.6(a)
