Foreword The International Organization of Legal Metrology ( oiml ) is a worldwide, intergovernmental organization whose primary aim is to harmonize the regulations and metrological controls applied by the national metrological services, or related organizations, of its Member States. The main categories of oiml publications are: International Recommendations ( oiml R), which are model regulations that establish the metrological characteristics required of certain measuring instruments and which specify methods and equipment for checking their conformity. oiml Member States shall implement these Recommendations to the greatest possible extent;. International Documents ( oiml D), which are informative in nature and which are intended to harmonize and improve work in the field of legal metrology.
6 International Guides ( oiml G), which are also informative in nature and which are intended to give guidelines for the application of certain requirements to legal metrology; and International Basic Publications ( oiml B), which define the operating rules of the various oiml structures and systems. oiml Draft Recommendations, Documents and Guides are developed by Technical Committees or Subcommittees which comprise representatives from the Member States. Certain international and regional institutions also participate on a consultation basis. Cooperative agreements have been established between the oiml and certain institutions, such as ISO and the IEC, with the objective of avoiding contradictory requirements. Consequently, manufacturers and users of measuring instruments, test laboratories, etc.
7 May simultaneously apply oiml publications and those of other institutions. International Recommendations, Documents, Guides and Basic Publications are published in English (E) and translated into French (F) and are subject to periodic revision. Additionally, the oiml publishes or participates in the publication of Vocabularies ( oiml V) and periodically commissions legal metrology experts to write Expert Reports ( oiml E). Expert Reports are intended to provide information and advice, and are written solely from the viewpoint of their author, without the involvement of a Technical Committee or Subcommittee, nor that of the CIML. Thus, they do not necessarily represent the views of the oiml . This publication reference oiml R 117-1 , Edition 2007 was developed by the oiml Technical Subcommittees TC 8/SC 3 Dynamic volume measurement of liquids other than water and TC 8/SC 4 Dynamic mass measurement of liquids other than water (Note: TC 8/SC 4 was merged with TC 8/SC 3 in 2006).
8 oiml R 117-1 was approved for final publication by the International Committee of Legal Metrology in 2007 and supersedes oiml R 117 dated 1995. oiml Publications may be downloaded from the oiml web site in the form of PDF files. Additional information on oiml Publications may be obtained from the Organization's headquarters: Bureau International de M trologie L gale 11, rue Turgot - 75009 Paris - France Telephone: 33 (0)1 48 78 12 82.

Many of the definitions used in this Recommendation conform to the International vocabulary of metrology - Basic and general concepts and associated terms (VIM Edition 2007 ), the Vocabulary of Legal Metrology (VML Edition 2000) and oiml International Document D 11 ( Edition 2004).
9 For the purposes of this Recommendation, the definitions below shall apply. Abbreviations and acronyms used in R 117-1 : AC = alternating current AM = amplitude modulation DC = direct current DR = Draft Recommendation Emin = minimum specified quantity deviation EM = electromagnetic EMC = electromagnetic compatibility = electromotive force ESD = electrostatic discharge EUT = equipment under test F = frequency h = hour(s) (time unit). IEC = International Electrotechnical Committee I/O = input/output (refers to ports). ISO = International Organization for Standardization LPG = liquefied petroleum gas (also liquefied gases under pressure). MMQ = minimum measured quantity MPE = maximum permissible error = not applicable oiml = International Organization of Legal Metrology P = pressure of the liquid Q = flowrate RH = relative humidity RF = radio-frequency s = seconds (time unit).
10 T = temperature of the liquid V = voltage (also indicated by U ). VIM = International vocabulary of metrology - Basic and general concepts and associated terms 5. oiml R 117-1 : 2007 (E). Additional device Part or device, other than an ancillary device, required to ensure correct measurement or intended to facilitate the measuring operations, or which could in any way affect the measurement. Main additional devices are: gas elimination device, gas indicator, sight glass, filter, pump, device used for the transfer point, anti-swirl device, branches or bypasses, valves, hoses. Adjustment device Device incorporated in the meter, that only allows shifting of the error curve generally parallel to itself, with a view to bringing errors within the maximum permissible errors.
