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.
