Understanding PTB Approval
The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the German Metrology Institute, acknowledged as one of the world’s premier national test laboratories.
Pattern Approval, or Type Approval, involves a test laboratory like PTB subjecting an instrument to a set of standards to verify that it meets the manufacturer’s performance claims.
