It is better to talk to us before you spend money on weighing or measuring equipment products, labelling, offers, promotions and marketing.
The Humber Authorities Calibration Test Centre
The centre has the facility to test weights, volume measures and pipettes, thermometers, torque wrenches, length measures and, pressure gauges.
It operates a 46 tonne Weighbridge Test Unit which operates throughout the country and is available for hire. You can also hire test weights from them.
The Centre is operated on a partnership basis by the Hull City Council, East Riding of Yorkshire County Council, North East Lincolnshire Council and North Lincolnshire Council.

Inspections and investigations
As part of an inspection we may test weighing and measuring equipment. This can include testing petrol pumps, shop scales and pub measures. We also investigate complaints alleging the short weight or measure of produce.
