Legal Verification Services

Weights and measures act seal

We employ a number of fully qualified and experienced Trading Standards Officers who are authorised Inspectors of Weights and Measures.


We offer a verification service for a wide range of weighing and measuring equipment which is required by UK and EU law to be tested and passed before it can be used for trade.

Advice and guidance

We can also provide advice and guidance on legal requirements as well as assessment of legal compliance and the development of due diligence procedures.
