Public weighbridge operators

In order to use a weighbridge for public weighings the equipment and the operators must be approved.

The equipment must be of an approved type and carry a UK or EC verification mark. This ensures that the equipment is suitable for such use and that it is sufficiently accurate.

Operators must obtain a certificate of competency which is issued by the Chief Inspector of Weights and Measures following satisfactory completion of a proficiency test.
