NotesThis standard has been withdrawn as it reproduces verbatim the International Vocabulary of Terms used in Legal Metrology (VIML) published by the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OMIL). The OIML has published later editions of the VIML but PD 6461-2:1980 has not been revised inline with the OIML documents. The latest edition of the VIML was published in 2000 and is available to download free of charge from the OIML web site. Consequently, the responsible BSI Technical Committee has decided to withdraw PD 6461-2:1980 without replacement. An online copy of the 2000 edition of the VIML can be found on the OIML web site at URL: http://www.oiml.org/publications/V/V001-ef00.pdf
