Legal study to verify the transposition of the metrology directives in all EU countries

Legal study to verify the transposition of the metrology directives in all EU countries
Published on: 29/07/2019 Last update: 29/07/2019
Deadline: 25/09/2019
The purpose of this study is to assist the European Commission in assessing the transposition and implementation by EU countries of Directives 2011/17/EU regarding metrology, 2014/31/EU on non-automatic weighing instruments, 2014/32/EU on measuring instruments, 2015/13/EU on the flowrate range of water meters in all EU countries. Number: 764/PP/GRO/IMA/19/1131/10854

To achieve the objectives of the study, the contractor will need to

1) Conduct a 'transposition check' for each EU country to verify whether the relevant national transposition measures of the EU country transpose the relevant provisions of the directives

2) Conduct a 'conformity check' for each EU country. This conformity check will consist of verifying whether the relevant national transposition measures of the EU country are consistent and compatible with the relevant provisions of the directive and with EU law in general

3) Identify and assess accompanying provisions, i.e. national provisions that go beyond the requirements of the directives

4) Assess the global state of implementation of the relevant provisions of the directives as well as the key issues as regards such implementation.

The legal analysis is to include both the transpositions notified to the Commission via the MNE database and any other relevant legal act in the EU country in question which may have an effect on the transposition.
