Weighbridge Operators Licence


Why is a licence required?

To operate a public weighbridge, you require a certificate of competence issued by the Chief Inspector for Weights and Measures for Gloucestershire County Council.

Can I assume my licence is granted if I don't hear from Gloucestershire County Council within a reasonable time?

No. Before a certificate can be obtained a weighbridge operator must be assessed by a Trading Standards Officer. Where a person is deemed to be competent a certificate will be issued which is valid indefinitely for the weighbridge being operated. Certificates are issued to an individual and are not transferable.

Is there an appeal process?

Please contact this authority in the first instance. You may appeal to the National Measurement Office if your application is refused.
