We operate weighbridge calibration vehicles throughout the UK equipped with 30 tonnes of calibrated weights. This allows us to carry out legal for trade calibrations without having to use external calibration facilities.
It is very important to have your weighbridge regularly calibrated to ensure ongoing accuracy and performance. Ideally checks should be made every 12 months. Owners of trade weighbridges have a legal responsibility to ensure their weighbridges are maintained within legal tolerances. If they fail to do this they can lay themselves open to prosecution and fines. Trading standards have the power to close down weighbridges that do not comply.
It is also important to remember that you must have your weighbridge re-tested (re-verified) if you replace critical components such as load cells. Any replacement load cells must also be ones approved by the relevant authorities for a particular weighbridge design/make.
