Trade approved scales can be used for retail and commercial use but still need to be certified to meet your obligations under the Retail Trade Agreement (1987)
Certified Trade Approved scales are required by law if goods are sold by weight or measure. However not all scales can be issued a certificate of accuracy. Scale types must first be approved by the NMI in accordance with their regulations. Once a scale or weighing equipment has been approved it is then issued with an NMI Approval number. Scales or weighing equipment with NMI approval numbers are therefore able to be tested and certified by Accredited Personnel, allowing the equipment to be used for legal trade use. In this category, we have listed all our Trade Approved scales.
