Verification of measuring instruments for vehicles

Testing instruments for tachographs or EU control instruments, respectively, and pulse counters belonging to them and measuring instruments for braking deceleration and revolution counters are subject to mandatory verification in Austria. Measuring instruments for braking deceleration and revolution counters are generally approved for verification, provided they meet the requirements of the verification regulations. Testing instruments for tachographs or EU control instruments, respectively, and pulse counters belonging to them are only acceptable for verification if they are type approved by BEV. The verification is carried out by the legal metrology authority.

The interval for subsequent verification is 2 years.
