It is a mandatory requirement in many countries to ensure that measuring instruments used in trade and commerce meet the required standards of accuracy and reliability.
The entity liable to obtain Model Approval Registration depends on the legal metrology regulations and the role of the entity involved in the manufacturing or distribution of the measuring instrument.
