Weighbridge Operators Certificate

To operate a public weighbridge, you need a certificate of competence issued by our Head of Trading Standards. To be issued with this certificate, you must have sufficient knowledge for the proper performance of your duties. See regulations 18, 19 and 20 of the Weights and Measures Act 1985.


No fee is required when applying for this certificate.


We will make an appointment to assess the operator for competence at a mutually agreeable time.

Does tacit consent apply?

No. A test must be passed before the certificate is granted.
