Inspection bodies verify measuring instruments

Measuring instruments are verified by inspection bodies approved by Tukes. When the verification of a measuring instrument is about to expire, the company responsible for the operation of the measuring device or another party using the measurement results orders verification from an inspection body.

Due to its work queues, the inspection body may move the time of verification by 4 months at maximum. The inspection body informs the customer of the decision to move the time of verification in writing.

Consumption measurement instruments, i.e. water, electrical energy, gas and thermal energy meters, can be verified in accordance with the procedures approved by the inspection body under the law.
