Weights and measures

Weights and measures (metrology) legislation will apply to your business if you are buying or selling by length, weight or quantity.

All weighing and measuring equipment must be suitable for its intended use and have a stamp of approval showing it is accuracy.

Failure to comply with the relevant legislation could lead to prosecution action being taken.

We inspect goods and equipment at both retail and production level. You can contact us if your equipment needs testing or approval.
