In 2016, our portable Bison C-Legs and Container Scales were OIML certified in accordance with OIML R76:2006. Along with this our container scales were type approved in Europe, having passed the performance tests for non-automatic weighing instruments of EC Directive 2014/31/EU.
Having a certified weighing scale means that the weight value you see on the equipment can be relied upon. The scales passed rigorous testing by a Government accredited organisation who have checked that the equipment and its components are:
Designed well and of a high standard
Not susceptible to any form of interference
Will show the correct weight regardless of temperature, humidity and the like
When we started developing our portable container scales back in 2014, it was always our ultimate goal to achieve these marks of excellence for the product. This was for three reasons:
To offer the first internationally certified, portable container weighing solution to the global market
To demonstrate that our scales meet the most rigorous international performance standards.
To provide shippers a useful new tool to verify the gross mass of shipping containers under the SOLAS VGM rules, which require shippers use “calibrated and certified weighing equipment”.
