  KERN Verification
The verification of scales is prescribed to the country of destination in areas in which consumer protection and fair competition are of special importance.

Verification can be done instead of calibration. Only scales capable of being verified through official verification allowance can be officially verified (verification possible).

The official verification of scales is required by law if they are used as follow:
  • in commercial trade if the price of an item is determined by weighing
  • in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and analysis in pharmaceutical and medical laboratories
  • for official purposes
  • in the production of pre-packaging
The legislative body governs the use of balances and test weights as well as time intervals for re-verification.

Its accuracy within the framework of permissible standard tolerances is thereby confirmed. EU verification applies to all member states of the EU.
