Average Weight Course
(Date to be confirmed)

West Yorkshire Trading Standards Service is offering a course aimed specifically at training delegates about the use of the Average Weight system in enforcement and industry. The course has been designed to give an in-depth view of:

  • The legal requirements
  • Packers and importers responsibilities
  • Equipment used
  • Evaluation of results
  • Packers problems
  • Rectification of unacceptable packages
  • Importers responsibilities

The system requires virtually all foodstuffs and household non-food items produced for retail sale by weight or volume comply. This is an ideal opportunity to refresh, enhance or achieve knowledge of this subject. We see this as a step towards taking all reasonable precautions and exercising all due diligence for your company.

The course is taken by an experienced Trading Standards Officer who is involved with packers and importers on a daily basis.
