Summary title: Petition No 0042/2019 by M.B. (German), on behalf of the “Vogtlaendischer Bauermarkt e.V.” association, on the calibration of specific types of weighing scales

Petition number: 0042/2019

Topics: Internal Market

Petition Summary  

The petitioner is of the view that there should be a more harmonised approach across the EU as regards the issuing of calibration certificates and the setting of calibration periods for weighing scales. The petitioner explains that non-fixed weighing scales that are imported and sold in Germany have to undergo a calibration certification, which is costly and time-consuming. The legal framework appears to be different for fixed weighing scales. The petitioner is of the view that all systems should be harmonised to avoid distortions within the Single Market for the sale of these products.
