NSAI Authorised Verifiers

The Authorised Verifier Scheme was introduced in 2008 to provide a more efficient and effective way of delivering verifications to owners of measuring instruments used in trade.  In essence the scheme allows the Director of Legal Metrology to appoint private enterprises to carry out national verifications on behalf of the Legal Metrology.

The authorisation is granted to applicants that demonstrate that they have the required expertise and resources to carry out verification work and the suitability of each is assessed so as to ensure they operate with:

  • Trained personnel
  • Traceable testing equipment
  • Test procedures according to international standards
  • Records systems
  • Customer charter
  • All of which must be documented in a quality management system certified by an accredited body or company.

 

ECSL successfully tendered for and were appointed as Authorised verifiers on behalf of the Legal Metrology Service (NSAI) in 2012 and have since then become the largest nationwide verifier and calibration body for diesel, petrol, kerosene and agricultural diesel dispensers (pumps) nationwide.

We have a team of 5 authorised verifiers so we will not be beaten on our level of service, response times, price or levels of professionalism. We currently provide this service for Maxol, Topaz, Esso, Applegreen, Top and many independently owned sites nationwide.
