All measuring instruments used in accordance with the Verification Act for measurements subject to legal control must be verified. In most cases, prerequisite for verification is a type approval, i.e. the type – and not each individual instrument but a typical specimen – must be approved by PTB. The approval procedure is as follows:

The manufacturer files an application for approval with PTB and submits the necessary technical documents and, normally, a sample instrument. The approval documents and the sample instrument are tested by the competent PTB section in compliance with the provisions of the Verification Ordinance. Essential criteria here are the instrument’s correctness and stability. The applicable requirements and maximum permissible errors must be complied with, and this for a period prescribed by law, the so-called period of validity of verification. The approval test covers metrological, technical and administrative tests. Among the metrological tests are tests performed under the impact of specific influence quantities such as temperature, humidity, vibrations, variations of the voltage supply, and electromagnetic fields. Within the scope of the technical tests which to an increasing extent also comprise software tests, one checks whether the functions of operation, display and printing meet the requirements and whether the instrument is adequately protected against faulty operation and manipulation.
