 When a weight that has a marked weight set out in column I of an item in a table to sections 84 to 88 is tested for in-service limits of error in relation to a local standard weight, the weight is considered to be within the in-service limits of error if its actual weight determined by the test

  • (a) is not more than its marked weight by an amount in excess of the amount set out in Column III of that item; and

  • (b) is not less than its marked weight by an amount in excess of the amount set out in Column IV of that item.

  • SOR/89-570, s. 6(F);
  • SOR/2012-28, s. 2.

  • (2) The limits of error for weights for use in conjunction with equal-arm pan-over-beam scales are twice the limits of error set out in the table to subsection (1).

  • (3) The limits of error for weights for use as ratio weights where the ratio is in excess of 100:1 are one-half the limits of error set out in the table to subsection (1).

  • SOR/89-570, s. 6(F).

 The limits of error set out in the following table apply to weights in special multiples of the gram that are approved only for use in conjunction with scales designed to be used for determining the butter-fat content of milk and the moisture content of butter:
