Verified Trade Approved scales and other types of weighing equipment are required by law if goods are sold by weight or measure. However not all scales can be issued a certificate of accuracy. Scale types must first be approved by the National Measurement Institute (NMI) in accordance with their regulations. Once a scale or weighing instrument has been approved it is then issued with an NMI Approval number. Scales or weighing equipment with NMI approval numbers are therefore able to be tested and verified by Accredited Personnel, allowing the equipment to be used for legal trade use.
Trade Approved scales are tested and verified in accordance with the National Measurement Institute (NMI) “Uniform Test Procedures NITP V6.1 to 6.4 “1st Edition
