This annual report of weights and measures inspections conducted by local weights and measures authorities covers the period of 2012 to 2013.
Under section 70 of the Weights and Measures Act 1985 local weights and measures authorities have a statutory requirement to report to the Secretary of State the level of local weights and measures enforcement work conducted over a 12 month period.
The information is used as evidence to inform and update the National Measurement Office (NMO) risk matrix in relation to instruments, pre-packages and transactions. This analysis of data is intended to help local authorities focus their resources to where it matters thus helping to plan a targeted risk-based delivery avoiding unnecessary routine interventions.
