Trade Approved Scales

The scales and balances in this section can be commonly referred to as Trade Approved, this simply means that they can be used in any application for verifying the weight of a product which is sold to a market by weight or to ensure accurate contents on packaged goods.

A good example of verifying the weight is the Retail or Shop scale, in your local supermarket they are used to weigh fresh produce, meats and dairy, which are sold to you by weight and the price calculated at the checkout.

Packaged products are viewed differently and the law relating to the weight contents is designed to ensure that the item being purchased has a minimum content weight. An example for the Food industry is a packet of crisps, on the bag there is a weight and an "e" symbol. This means that the contents of the packet are not less than the weight indicated. A product like this has to have been weighed on a trade approved scale.

Medical scales that are used for diagnostic purposes also have to be trade approved, this relates to recent laws that govern this requirement. This ensures that scales used by doctors and other professional staff are fit for purpose and the weights are accurate.

Trade approved is a terminology used to broadly describe a category, the same products can also be referred to as Trade Stamped, Verified, Class III or Class II, EC Stamped, M Class Approved and some times Trading Standards Approved. Basically it all means the same thing, the scales are tested to a standard agreed by the EC and each machine must carry the necessary markings.
