Weights and Measures

Controls for weighing and measuring equipment

To protect consumers from short and inaccurate measures, Trading Standards test and verify the accuracy of weighing and measuring equipment in use for trade, including:

  • Retail weighing machines
  • Spirit measures
  • Liquid fuel dispensers
  • Weighbridges

Guidance on weights and measures legislation can be found on the Office for Product Safety and Standards (opens new window) or Business Companion (opens new window) websites. If you require further information on how this legislation applies to your business or would like to discuss having the equipment tested, please contact Trading Standards.
