 When a measure that has an indicated volume set out in Column I of an item in a table to sections 101 to 103 is tested for in-service limits of error in relation to a relevant local standard, the measure is within the in-service limits of error if its actual volume determined by the test

  • (a) does not exceed its indicated volume by an amount in excess of the amount set out in Column III of that item; and

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

  • SOR/89-570, s. 6(F).
  •  (1) Subject to subsection (3), the limits of error set out in the following table apply to all measures used for measuring liquids or solids in metric units of volume or capacity:
