Any scales that are used in situations where the displayed weight determines the actual price charged to a customer or paid to a supplier for the weighed items must be approved by Trading Standards. They may be referred to as ‘Trade Approved’, ‘Stamped’, ‘Weights & Measures Approved’ or 'EC Approved’. If they are used in the Gold and Jewellery trade they MUST have the more exacting 'Class II Approval'. All the scales in this section are already fully Trade Approved, having all necessary markings as required to comply with Weights & Measures UK legislation. Many of our other scales however can be supplied Trade Approved if required, usually for a small extra charge to cover the approval fee.
