DUI Metrology Dictionary
Instrument of a kind, Instrument d'un type approuve
The concept of "type" or "kind" was included in the former definition of approved instrument contained in the old pre-December 2018 Criminal Code. When modifications were made to approved instruments or approved screening devices, Courts such as the ON CA in R. v. Bebbington  O.J. No. 1085 and R. v. Alatyppo  O.J. No. 55, made use of this concept to accept that the AI or ASD in question was still "approved". OIML in the VIML says the following about "type approval": 2.05: decision of legal relevance, based on the review of the type evaluation report, that the type of a measuring instrument complies with the relevant statutory requirements and results in the issuance of the type approval certificate. Bill C-46 section 320.11 does not use the concept of type or kind.
