The NAWI directive has stated that all scales which are ‘used in the determination of mass in the practice of medicine for the purpose of monitoring, diagnosis and medical treatment’ must be Class III Approved. An Approved scale is rigorously tested by an EU notified body to assure the user of accuracy and reliability.
