Public Weighbridges and Operator Licences

If you operate public weighing equipment you must be a certified weighbridge operator. We issue these certificates.

Operators of public weighing equipment have responsibilities to ensure that they can perform their duties competently and honestly. No one can operate public weighing equipment unless he/she holds a certificate of competence from us.
