To keep up with the continuous developments of weighing instruments and reduce the administrative burden it is needed to reduce the time it takes to obtain certificates such as EU type-approval certificates. Therefore, CECIP organised on 7 September the CECIP webinar on ‘certification in one day’ to discuss how this can be done. During this webinar speakers from LNE (Thomas Lommatzsch), PTB (Dorothea Knopf) and Dibal (Joan Martinez) presented their views on what should and can be done to improve the certification procedures. It resulted in an interesting debate with clear ideas of possibilities in the short, medium and longer term. Overall, it seems that a ‘certification in one day’ might be too optimistic, but there are certainly improvements possible to make the certification procedures faster.
