Weights and Measures

Everyday consumer goods are required by law to have their quantities indicated for the customer. This includes goods that are weighed or measured at the customer's request, or packaged ready for sale.

Further information can be found at Business Companion's Weights and Measures page.

If Business Companion doesn’t provide the guidance that you are looking for, email us at and we may be able to provide the information you require.

Calibration Laboratory

Our mass laboratory enables precise and accurate calibration of weights, weighing machines and capacity measures. This enables calibration of weights up to OIML (International Organisation of Legal Metrology) accuracy of M1 Working Standard level.

All calibration work is accompanied by a comprehensive Certificate of Calibration, bearing the Fife Council logo, which are fully traceable to National Standards.

If you need to contact Trading Standards about calibration work, please email us at
