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 or bought by weight.
'Trade approved' is a term used to broadly describe a category of weighing scales that have been certified by a governmental body or recognised authority to comply with regulations for buying and selling goods by weight; the same products can also be referred to as Trade Stamped, Verified, Class III or Class II, EC Stamped, M Class Approved and sometimes Trading Standards Approved. These terms often mean the same thing; in the UK, and each machine must carry the necessary markings.
