Service Description

If your conformity assessment body for measuring instruments is recognized and accredited, it can start its work.

A conformity assessment body (CAB) that wishes to assess the conformity of measuring instruments with the essential requirements requires recognition (recognized conformity assessment body).

Recognition is granted when the conformity assessment body

  • applies to the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) in writing (also possible by e-mail) and
  • it is accredited for the activities.

A CAB must prove that it has the competence to carry out the conformity assessment procedure. This so-called accreditation is carried out by the DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH).


Process flow

Conformity assessment bodies (CABs) can obtain recognition by submitting an accreditation certificate to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection.

  • You can apply for recognition by letter or e-mail.
