Measuring instruments

This information is provided by: Netherlands Enterprise Agency

In the Netherlands, if you manufacture or sell measuring instruments, they must comply with the requirements of, for instance, the Dutch Metrology Act (Metrologiewet), Measuring Instruments Decrees (Meetinstrumentenbesluiten), Regulation on Metrological Brand Marks (Regeling metrologische merktekens) and Metrology Act (Exemption) Regulation (Regeling vrijstelling Metrologiewet). These regulations list the technical requirements that the measuring instrument must satisfy and which measuring units can be used.

Please note: The technical requirements that apply in the Netherlands to measuring instruments differ from those of other EU Member States. If a measuring instrument is already permitted in another EU Member State, the Dutch government may only prohibit its sale in the Netherlands in exceptional cases.
