March 2019 OIML R117

CECOD attended the review of comments for the next revision of OIML recommendation R117 in Cape Town. R117 sets the technical performance requirements for many products manufactured by CECOD members, including fuel dispensers and meters. Our primary interest was in ensuring that certain proposed changes associated with bunkering do not lead to a general relaxation of metrological performance requirements. Our other main interest is in monitoring the introduction of software assessment and certification requirements into this internationally recognised OIML document.
