Amendments to the Weights and Measures Regulations
Regulations Amending the Weights and Measures Regulations (Miscellaneous Program) were published in the Canada Gazette Part II on February 22, 2017. The Weights and Measures Act and Regulations govern legal units of measurement, the use of approved and examined weighing and measuring machines that meet established technical requirements, and the accurate measurement of products and services traded on the basis of measure. The purpose of the minor amendments is to correct inconsistencies between the English and French versions of the Weights and Measures Regulations and to clarify certain sections. These amendments do not alter the intent of the Regulations or impose new restrictions or burdens on individuals or industry.
