DETECTO has been approved to provide verified OIML EC class III scales shipped directly from their USA factory in Webb City, Missouri. This new value-added service provides the end-user with the benefit of a class III medical scale arriving to their facility verified and immediately ready for patient measurement. With this service offered directly from the factory, unnecessary handling and double-shipping charges are avoided. This eliminates third-party verification services and means the scale has not been removed from its original packaging until it arrives at its final destination.
DETECTO verified scales conform to the NAWI directive 2014/31/EU. DETECTO has been assessed and approved by the National Measurement Office (NMO) for verified weights and measures.
Each DETECTO OIML EC Class III verified scale includes specific Declaration of Conformity documentation for that individual scale which is backed up electronically on a server for a minimum of 10 years by DETECTO. Verified scales undergo additional rigorous calibration, tare point procedures, and repeatability tests in conformity with the NAWI directive 2014/31/EU. The gravitational constant is input with the end-user’s location before the scale is shipped from DETECTO’s factory in the US. The scale is also appropriately marked with the proper CE labelling for EC verification in accordance with the EU harmonized standards.
DETECTO manufactures a wide variety of OIML EC Class III medical scales including USA-made eye-level physician scales, wheelchair scales, bariatric scales with digital height rods, rolling chair scales, portable platform scales, and pediatric scales. Since 1900, DETECTO has been a world-renowned clinical, foodservice, and shipping industry scale manufacturer. DETECTO is also the largest medical scale manufacturer in the United States and complies with ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485 quality standards.
