Who needs to get Registered under Legal Metrology?
The second most important thing is the declaration under the legal metrology rules. Any commodity that is packed has to have certain LMPC declarations on the package. The legal metrology registration of a manufacturer, packer, or importer of packed commodities is mandatory.
Anybody who wants to manufacture, pack or import any prepackaged commodity has to register himself under the registration for importer of weights and measures.
Any importer who wants to import anything relating to weights and measures has to also register himself under the act of probation on manufacturer repair and sale of weights and measures without licences.
Every product, every weight and measure that is repaired or sold or manufactured has to be addressed by licensed variant machine treatments. Further without model approval and manufacturing licence no one is allowed to sell the product in the Indian Market.
Manufacturers or importers of the commodity may have a large number of instruments, but if they are not approved by the Legal Metrology Department or they do not have a manufacturing licence, they are not allowed to sell, and it will be an illegal verification, stamping of weights and measures.
What is the need for verified weights and measures?
Every weight and measure has to be verified and stamped. Unless it is stamped, it is not illegal and it cannot be taken for granted.
Using unverified weights and measures is a true offence and penalties have also been provided under the act.
