Conformity assessment replaces calibration
Since 1st January 2015 calibrating measuring tools, as practiced for many years in forestry, belongs to the past. In its place comes a conformity assessment in accordance with the EU Directive. This term refers to the activities of selecting and determining properties, assessing whether prescribed or general requirements have been complied with and ultimately confirming that the product’s specific standards comply; either by manufacturer’s declaration or by a registering authority’s certificate. The old "calibration flag" or "verification mark" on the measuring tool has now been replaced by a standardised Signum: DE-M 15 0111. Behind the signum is an encrypted product conformity value; in this case awarded in 2015 by the conformity assessment body 0111 (here: MEN Hannover), once the product has been examined and rated as "compliant" for its intended purpose. A tool so marked is equivalent to the old "calibrated" mark.
