Any scales that are used in situations where the displayed weight determines the actual price charged to a customer for the weighed items, e.g. in retailing, the scale MUST be approved for this use by Trading Standards. They can 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 the 'Green M' sticker and 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.
