Laboratory

The company RIZ-LABORATORIJ d.o.o. was founded in Zagreb, Croatia on December 24th 2004.

Within the company there are two laboratories:

  • Ispitni laboratorij za brojila električne energije (ILBEN) - an accredited laboratory for testing static and electromechanical direct connected and transformer operated watt-hour (energy) meters (ILBEN) for active and reactive energy accredited in accordance with the HRN EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard
  • Laboratory authorized for verifying watt-hour (energy) meters according to the Croatian national laws and regulations (Narodne novine 127/2009).


About us
During 2005 the Croatian Accreditation Agency (Agency) carried out an assessment of our laboratory for testing watt-hour meters for direct connection of class indexes 1 and 2 according to the standard HRN EN ISO/IEC 17025. The Agency recognized the Laboratory’s competence by issuing an Accreditation Certificate on January 23rd 2006.
After the State Office for Metrology published the Croatian version of the New Approach Measuring Instruments Directive (Narodne novine 02/2007) and in order to fulfil our ’customers’ future requests, we broadened the scope of accredited methods on testing watt-hour meters for direct connection of class indexes A, B and C.

In late 2010 the Laboratory initiated a reaccreditation process along with a request for broadening the testing scope. On February 22nd 2013 the Croatian Accreditation Agency issued an Accreditation Certificate for carrying out tests of static and electromechanical direct connected and transformer operated watt-hour meters for active and reactive energy accredited in accordance with the HRN EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard of class indexes 1, 2, A, B, C, 0,2 S i 0,5 S for active and class indexes 2, 3 for reactive energy.

The whole scope of the accredited testing methods including a list of standards is given in the Accreditation Certificate Annex.
After the issuance of the national regulation for authorizing bodies for verifying energy meters (Narodne novine 127/2009), we made a request at the Croatian State Office for Metrology which has assessed and authorized RIZ-Laboratorij as a verification body.
RIZ-LABORATORIJ d.o.o. is a member of the Society of Croatian Laboratories CROLAB and also a member of the Croatian Metrology Society.
In addition to testing meters, RIZ-LABORATORIJ offers its customers other services and tests.
