7. Notification Under Another Act

8. Main Content
The purpose of this regulation is to lay down metrological and technical requirements for catchweighers, including regulation on surveillance when such instruments are in service.

9. Brief Statement of Grounds
This regualtion implements the requierments for catchweighers laid down in Directive 2004/22/EC (MID).

The regulation also prescribes which of the accuracy classes defined in the directive that should be
used for specific applications, which is permitted according to MID. These requirements were notifed according to 98/34/EC in 2006.

In addition, it prescribes provisions on surveillance when such instruments are in service, and gives the possibility to impose infringement penalty, if the requirement is violated. The regulation prescribes requirements that are accepted, expected and needed in Norway, for the reasons of public interst, fair trade and consumer protection. Given that measuring instruments must continue to function properly when they are put in to use and are in service, requirements have also been laid down when they are in service. These requirements are broader then before they are sold or offered for sale, because some degree of wear of these instruments or their componenents is acceptable when in use (such as for maximum permissible error, see § 31).
