Local Weights and Measures Authority reports and returns on enforcement work carried out over a 12 month period.
Every Local Weights and Measurse Authority (LWMA) in the UK is required to report the level of local enforcement work conducted over a 12 month period under section 70 of the Weights and Measures Act 1985. This information is collated into an annual report by Regulatory Delivery that is used to create a risk matrix which identifies the risk of equipment failing and the level of consequences of that risk. This then enables LWMA to identify which areas their resources should be prioritised towards using targeted inspections. This is the format agreed by the Secretary of State in accordance with section 70 of the Weights and Measures Act 1985.
Section 70 returns should be emailed to: Section70Returns@beis.gov.uk
