Must a non-automatic weighing instrument (NAWIs) meet the requirements of EN45501 to get approval?
Not necessarily. As previously stated, the instruments must meet the Essential Requirements of the Directive 90/384/EEC. Meeting the requirements of EN45501 is merely one way of demonstrating conformity with the Essential Requirements. Other equivalent standards may be used. However, designing the instrument to meet EN45501 is usually the easiest route for the manufacturer to take.
