Tired of paying for 100 g, while all you get is 90 g at the grocery store? Adhering to the scale certification that holds great importance in Calgary and across Canada, quality at Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. is ensured from the initial contact to the final installation stage. We believe that everyone in the modern marketplace should be aware of and take responsibility for fair measurement.

With a variety of weighing scale equipment and instruments in our rental fleet, our team of experts can fulfill any requirements. To know about the rental services, give us a call.

Authorized and Certified Service Providers

We have been accredited as authorized scale inspectors by Measurement Canada. Under the Weights and Measures Act, we can certify trade devices on behalf of Measurement Canada.

Every equipment is inspected by us to ensure its adherence to the regulations. Generally, Measurement Canada follows up with its own inspectors to ensure accuracy, post our inspection. If you find your device displaying inaccurate measurements, please contact us. Once your device complies, we will give it a government-issued sticker as a mark of certification.

From 1867 to the Present

Before the Confederation in 1867, each province had its own system of regulating weights and measures. But after 1867, the Government of Canada took over as the authority on the issue. The Weights and Measures Act was first passed in 1872, followed by the Gas Inspection Act and the Electric Light Inspection Act, forming the basis of our measurement regulations today.

  • Calibrating and certifying measurement standards, including mass, length, volume, temperature, electrical measurements, and more.
  • Approving instruments used to weigh and measure, such as gasoline pumps, natural gas meters and scales.
  • Inspecting and approving measurement devices to ensure accuracy and prevent distortion or falsehood.
  • Keeping businesses updated about the standards and legal obligations related to measurement accuracy.
  • Investigating complaints and reporting suspected inaccurate measurements.

Complying With the Regulations 

Scale certification ensures each weighing equipment is properly calibrated and held to the same standards. This puts all the businesses that use the equipment on an equal playing field. Any business that fails to comply with regulations may suffer consequences such as:

  • Poor productivity and downtime due to the withdrawal of equipment from use.
  • High capital investment of purchasing a new scale.
  • Lost income caused directly by inaccurate measurements.
  • High maintenance costs.
  • Fines and closures.
  • Negative effect on the company’s reputation.

At Accurate/Western Scale Co. Ltd. in Calgary, our 24/7 response service will help you eliminate all the above problems. In addition, when we come to fix your scale, you won’t have to call a third party to certify it. We can do the certification for you, saving your time and effort.

Recommendations for Good Standing

Our team of dedicated technicians are trained and equipped to install and maintain your equipment, including regular calibration, servicing and repair. We recommend you use your equipment only for its intended measuring purpose – don’t measure material your device is not designed to measure. You must consider the following while renting or purchasing a scale:

  • Protecting your equipment from environmental damage.
  • Ensuring the device shows measurements clearly.
  • Thoroughly training staff on how to use the equipment properly.
  • Buying and using equipment that has been approved, inspected and certified.
