Approved for Trade Scales

Trade approved scales undergo a two stage process by the manufacturer to ensure it meets the pattern approval before testing and sealed to ensure compliance with UK regulations.

Approved scales use components that have been tested to OIML standards for metrology and comply with their patern approval, however there may be operational  retrictions applied in order to comply with UK standards.

Firstly when the scale is built at the factory and components fitted the scale undergoes a factory calibration called first stage, and then when the unit is supplied to a UK Post code a second stage test and calibration carried out but not all machines meet the standards.

We exercise a common sense approach to these units however restrictions may apply to the operation of the scales and software in order to comply with UK laws which restrict the use of the scales functions.

For the above reasons we strongly suggest talking with us your application prior to purchase as retrofitting is not an option, also your local Trading Standards may not agree with the scales usage and forfiet the units.

Trade approved scales that have not gone through this process cannot be retrofitted after point of sale as these are custom units.

Choosing scale for Minimum Weight.

Minimum weight means that no package shall be less the quantity g or ml on the package, and all packages need to checked accross a trade with an e marked divice normally a class II / III units meets the requirements.

Average weight applications

As the average weight system is based on a samples from the BATCH for calculating the mean of the weighing results to comply with the three packers rules.

As an established weighing company the law is the same throughout the UK  and it is regulated by your Local Authority  "Inspector of Weights and Measures", and contact them if in any doubt any compliance issues for your process.

The above is for general guidance on selecting products from our website, however as these scales are "Custom Products" and calibrated for place of use, you may loose some operational features due to the way the current regulations operate.
