An OPTIONAL Kern verification can be purchased with these balances, please contact our sales team for further information or to add this to an order. According to the EU directive 2014/31/EEC, all member states must calibrate/ verify scales that are to be used in the following capacities:

  • Medical applications
  • Production of pre-packaging
