Weights and Measures

Trading Standards in conjunction with the National Measurement Office regulate trade using weights and measures. 

Both the accuracy of the equipment (weighing or measuring equipment) used in transactions and the way in which the equipment is used is controlled. This is checked by Trading Standards by conducting inspections of premises and also by investigating in response to consumer complaints.

Businesses looking to have equipment tested for compliance with weights and measures laws are able to use Trading Standards facilities (charges apply, see Fees and Charges).  Dudley Trading Standards offers a limited number of equipment tests, please contact us for more details.
