Metrological Control : Legal metrological control

VIML 2.01 We have this in Canada for gas pumps and grocery weight scales. We do not have this in Canada for measuring instruments used for a forensic purpose, e.g. approved instruments under the Criminal Code. VIML definition: "the whole of legal metrology activities"
Note Legal metrological control includes
• legal control of measuring instruments,
• metrological supervision,
• all the operations for the purpose of
examining and demonstrating, e.g. to
testify in a court of law, the condition of a
measuring instrument and to determine its
metrological properties, amongst others by
reference to the relevant statutory
requirements.
