Weights and Measures Regulatory Requirements

For devices that incorporate a ‘Legal for Trade’ weighing or measuring instrument, Weights and Measures regulations place the responsibility on the device owner to notify their local Weight and Measures authority and follow any ‘Placing in Trade’ requirements prior to using the instrument to perform measurement-based financial transactions.

The verification of a new or repaired regulated in-service measuring instrument is performed by government metrology authorities or by accredited service organizations by each country’s government.
