We ensure that weighing and measuring equipment used for trade is accurate and help prevent the sale of goods by short measure or weight.

Trading Standards Officers, as Inspectors of Weights and Measures, are responsible for checking all weighing and measuring equipment used for trade.

This includes shop scales, weighbridges, petrol pumps, pub measures etc. Tests of equipment are carried out during routine inspections of premises.

If you wish to have any equipment stamped or verified for trade use or wish to take the test to become a public weighbridge operator please contact us to discuss appointments. Tel. 01225 396753
