Apply to become an approved manufacturer

Approved manufacturers are manufacturers of weighing and measuring equipment whose quality system has been certified by a UK Approved Body primarily under the Module D or D1 conformity assessment procedure, as set out in the Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments Regulations 2016 (as amended) or Measuring Instruments Regulations 2016 (as amended). Approved manufacturers can complete initial verification of instruments as set out in their certified conformity assessed quality system.

Some approved manufacturers for the Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments Regulations 2016 can have their quality system certified by a UK Approved Body under Module D or D1 for the purposes of requalification of instruments they have manufactured. UK Approved Bodies for Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments and Measuring Instruments can be found on the UK Market Conformity Assessment Bodies (UKMCAB) database.

Once certified by a UK Approved Body, your details will be passed to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) via the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) which will then add you to the list of approved manufacturers below. Any approved manufacturer that does not maintain its conformity assessment certification shall be removed from the list and thereafter be unable to undertake verification activities.
