Weights & Measures Calibration Service

Did you know, it's estimated that over a billion pounds of goods are sold by weights and measures every week in the UK.  We work to protect businesses and consumers by ensuring these measurements are correct.


We provide a calibration service for trade and industry using our local standards of weight, length and capacity which are traceable to national and ultimately international standards.  Our fully qualified Inspectors of Weights and Measures operate an in-house testing service and for some equipment may be able to test at your premises.


Having verified weighing and measuring equipment allows your business to trade legally and in many cases it will be a requirement for quality assurance schemes.  Please contact us if you have any queries.
We can calibrate most types of weighing and measuring equipment including:
  • Weights up to 30 kg
  • Length Standards up to 50 m
  • Volumetric Standards up to 30 litres
