Measures of Length and Capacity

Our calibration of measures of length and capacity do not fall under the remit of our UKAS accreditation.

Length measures are compared against our Local Standard length measures which have been examined and certified by National Measurement and Regulation Office. We can test rulers up to 2m in length and this includes horse measuring sticks (as required by the Joint Measurement Board Ltd). Tape measures up to 20m in length can be tested.

Capacity measures are tested gravimetrically using scales, in accordance with National Measurement and Regulation Office requirements. We frequently test metal measures for petrol pumps and graduated glass flasks. A certificate of calibration will be issued.
