Public weighbridge operator's certificate

EUGO logo To operate a public weighbridge, you must have a certificate of competence issued by the Chief Inspector for Weights and Measures for your local authority.

Application for a public weighbridge operator's certificate


Following your application you will be contacted within 5 working days to arrange a mutually convenient date for you to be tested by an Inspector of Weights and Measures at the premises where the weighing or measuring equipment is located. Tacit consent does not apply, it is a legal requirement that the authority must process your application and you must be tested before a certificate can be granted. If you have not heard from the local authority within a reasonable period, please contact us.

Failed application redress

Please contact us in the first instance.

You may appeal to the National Measurement Office if your application is refused.

Consumer Rights will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
