Weights & Measures

Trading Standards - Metrology (weights and measures)

The Metrology Team deal with issues regarding weights and measures, including:

  • Inspecting and testing weighing and measuring equipment used in business, such as shop scales, petrol pumps and weighbridges
  • Inspecting and testing output from local manufacturers and packers
  • Advising businesses on all aspects of weights and measures laws 
  • Working in partnership with the Humber Authorities Calibration Test Centre to provide and maintain local standards of weights and measures

We are a founding member of the Yorkshire and Humber Authorities Verification Service - an EC (European Commission) approved body - and so can offer a verification service for virtually all types of weighing and measuring instruments. Our weights and measures fees [PDF, 53Kb] are available online.

Public weighbridges

To check that your vehicle is not overloaded you should go straight to your nearest weighbridge before continuing your journey. Below is a list of the current public weighbridges in North Lincolnshire (please note that there may be a fee for the use of these weighbridges and we recommend that you contact them before travelling to ensure that they are open).
