The appointment procedure commences when a legal entity or a sole trader files a request for appointment at the Metrology Institute (hereinafter referred to as ‘Institute’).

The director of the Institute appoints a three-member expert committee for the assessment (hereinafter referred to as ‘committee’). The committee proposes to the director of the Institute an opinion on the fulfilment of the requests for appointment on the basis of the study of the submitted documentation and an assessment visit with the applicant.

Based on the committee's opinion, the director of the Institute determined a proposal for appointment and submits it to the competent minister who issues a decision on appointment.

The applicant who shows their competence with an accreditation document is issued a decision until the termination of the accreditation document. The decision on appointment may be extended only if the applicant submits valid evidence.
