DUBAI,  4th November, 2013 (WAM) — In bid to promote the trust between seller and customer, Dubai Central Laboratory of Dubai Municipality has launched an initiative called Accurate Balance aimed at checking the accuracy of weighing scales in all types of commercial outlets. 

It comes as the continuation of similar initiative launched by DCL in the beginning of the year to check accuracy of weighing scales in gold and jewelry shops which had a great impact in boosting the gold and jewelry trade in the emirate.

During the current phase, the laboratory will verify weighing machines in supermarkets, hypermarkets, sweet shops, cooperative stores, butchery shops, restaurants, fish and vegetable markets, cargo companies and airports.

The legal calibration in the future will include all legal measuring instruments, including but not limited to: medical devices, taxi meters, fuel meters, pre-packaged containers, volumetric weights and compressed gas counters.

Hawa Bastaki, Director of DCL, said: “The initiative comes as part of Dubai Municipality’s keenness to provide the best services for the community so that everyone in the Emirate of Dubai can buy any product with peace of mind and lead a peaceful life as the civic body will never allow any type of manipulation in the market.”
