Weights and measures inspections

We visit trade premises and carry out inspections and verification of weighing and measuring equipment.

Examples include:

  • counter weighing machines
  • weighbridges
  • weights
  • petrol pumps
  • spirit measuring instruments
  • wine and beer glasses
  • metre measures to name some common examples
  • prepacked goods, breads, textiles etc.

These are tested to ensure correct weight or measure.
