Instrument Search

A Guide to Identifying Notified Bodies in the UK

NMO has provided a search tool to facilitate the location of suitable and competent service providers for the conformity assessment of different instrument types. The facility is designed to help manufacturers and users of weighing and measuring instruments to place their equipment on the market under MID and provides access to notified bodies for conformity assessment. It can also identify notified bodies for NAWI re-verification.

How to do the search for a Notified Body?

Please select an instrument type and appropriate UK region. This will establish which if any notified bodies exist to meet those parameters .You will then be given an option to view the homepage of the organisation or to search through the NANDO (New Approach Notified and Designated Organisations) link to establish which Directives are applicable. On selection of a Directive, the conformity assessment task(s) provided by each of the organisations will be identified.

If you require a notified body from another Member State you can identify suitable candidates from the NANDO website on EUROPA , using the link at the bottom of this page.
