Start Legal Metrology Registration

The Legal Metrology Act establishes and enforces weights and measurements rules and regulations. The major legislation governing packaged goods, as well as rules pertaining to various topics such as national standards, model approvals, and numeration, has a broad impact because it requires packers, dealers, and particularly eCommerce businesses dealing with packaged goods to register and comply.

The Act establishes guidelines for product packaging in order to promote ethical business practises and protect consumers' rights. It also establishes the dimensions and weight limits for packed goods. The Act also specifies the disclosure, requirements, and procedures. The administration of the Act is the responsibility of each state's department of legal metrology, which is a branch of the department of consumer affairs.

  • List the highest possible retail price (including all taxes)
  • The packaging must include the date of manufacturing, packaging, or import as well as the month and year
  • On the product, the date of expiry should be listed along with the month and year
  • Additionally, the window of time during which the product is most effective can be indicated
  • Commodity quantity, ingredient(s), customer service or helpline for consumer complaints must be provided without fail.

Importance of Legal Metrology for Packaged Goods

Legal metrology regulations do not apply to unpacked objects because the weighing is typically done after the customer enters. As with flour, the product is occasionally made in front of the buyer, and the buyer is also aware of the identity of the manufacturer or vendor. When it comes to packaged goods, however, the manufacturer's name is not always clear. The buyer may be unable to reach the producer. There are many intermediaries between the producer and the final customer. It is difficult to determine who is to blame for changes in quantity and quality. The end user must have access to all pertinent information about packaged items, including expiration date, weight, and price, in order to make well-informed purchasing decisions.
