Weighbridge operators licence
To operate a public weighbridge, you require a certificate of competence issued by the Chief Inspector for Weights and Measures for South Ayrshire Council. This ensures that you can perform your duties competently and honestly and can be obtained after performing a basic test. No one can operate public weighing equipment unless he or she holds a certificate
