OIML R 35-1 Length Measures: Comment Sought

NMI is seeking your input on proposed amendments to the international pattern approval requirements for material measures of length.

Article date:
21/11/2013 12:00 AM

The proposed amendments to OIML R 35-1 seek to amend:

  • clause 4.4.1 which details the rated operating conditions, in particular temperature — there are concerns about the ability of manufacturers to meet the requirements currently stipulated with regard to the rated operating condition and expansion of material used
  • clause 6.2 for consistency and to avoid any contradiction with the proposed amendment to clause 4.4.1

Please email your comments to by close of business Friday 13 December 2013.

OIML R 35 does not form the basis for national pattern approval requirements — Australian requirements are based on NMI M 1 which is currently not being revised.
