CECIP's vision and mission 

The principal objective of CECIP is to represent at European level the weighing industry and its member organisations.

In particular CECIP focuses on:

  • Promoting a high quality standard in the manufacture of weighing instruments;
  • Co-operating with the metrological services in the establishment and amendment of the regulatory environment;
  • Reducing the technical and administrative regulations relevant to weighing instruments to those requirements which are necessary not to harm users;
  • Ensuring harmonisation of national regulations and the use of established international standards, in order to eliminate barriers to cross-border trade of weighing instruments;
  • Ensuring that national and international requirements do not prevent the development of new weighing technologies;
  • Liaising with national and international organisations and with end users concerning all aspects of legal metrology including consistent interpretation of requirements;
  • Promoting a good understanding of modern weighing technology, especially in developing countries;
  • Ensuring fair trade practices by all weighing instrument manufacturers worldwide.
