A public weighbridge is, as the name suggests, a weighbridge that is available for the public to use.
Operators of public weighbridges need to hold a certificate of competence issued by the Chief Inspector of Weights and Measures. This ensures that they can perform their 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.
There is no charge for the certificate of competence.
