the gauges listed in annex No. 3 to 12 of this regulation, which are

in certain aspects of the General requirements of the much more detailed.



The solutions adopted in respect of the essential requirements, it shall take into account

intended use of the instrument and any foreseeable misuse thereof.



The DEFINITION of the



Measured variable



Measured variable is specified a quantity subject to measurement.



Influence quantity



An influence quantity is a quantity that is not the measurand but

affects the result of the measurement.



Rated operating conditions



The rated operating conditions are the values for the measurand and

influence factors that make up the normal working conditions of the gauge.



Interference



Interference is affecting the quantity having a value within the limits set by

specific requirement but outside the specified rated operating conditions of the gauge.

An influence quantity is a disturbance if for that influence

quantity not specified working conditions.



The critical change value



The critical change value is the value at which the change in the measurement result

is considered undesirable.



Material measure



A material measure is a device intended to reproduce or the provision of

one or more known values of a given quantity permanently during the

the use of.



Direct sales



The business transaction is direct sales if



and the measurement result) serves as the basis for determining the price to be paid,



(b)), at least one of the parties of the transaction that is associated with the measurement,

is a consumer or any other person, requiring a similar level of

the protection and



(c) the parties in the transaction accept) all of the measurement result at that time and on

a given location.



The climatic environment



Climatic environments are the conditions in which you can gauge

to use. In order to take into account climatic differences between the

the Member States, has been defined by a series of temperature range.



Distribution company



A utility is regarded as a supplier of electricity,

gas, heat or water.



THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS
