What is MID Approval?

Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) European Directive

MID is the Measuring Instruments Directive which is a European Directive which harmonises the requirements of ten different measuring instruments types for domestic, commercial and light industrial use.

MID approvals provide manufacturers with a single approval certificate which is valid throughout Europe.

These measuring instrument types include:

  • Water Meters
  • Gas Meters & Volume Conversion Devices
  • Active Electrical Energy Meters
  • Heat Meters
  • Measuring Systems for the continuous and dynamic measurement of liquids other than water
  • Automatic Weighing Instruments
  • Taxi Meters
  • Material Measures
  • Dimensioning Systems
  • Exhaust Gas Analysers

The aim of the MID approval is to provide both manufacturers and consumers across Europe with reassurance of a high level of safety, reliability and accuracy of the measuring instrument. For each instrument type there are specific regulations and classifications.
