Design, Composition and Construction
121. A machine shall be of a design, composition and construction that will enable it to resist such exposure to vibration, the product measured, foreign matter, dirt, moisture and extremes of temperature as may be encountered in its intended service, so that wear of its moving components will be minimized, its accuracy will be maintained, its operating parts will continue to function properly and its means of adjustment will retain their settings.
122. and 123. [Repealed, SOR/98-115, s. 8]
124. Any electrical or electronic components, equipment or accessories attached to or used in conjunction with a machine that have or can have an effect on the accuracy of the machine shall function properly despite such steady-state and transient variations in the frequency, voltage and waveform of the electrical supply and disturbances in the surrounding electromagnetic and electrostatic field as may normally exist in the intended service.
125. When a machine requires an electrical power supply, the frequency, voltage and current requirements and any special limitations on the stability or quality of power supply required to enable the machine to measure accurately shall be marked on the machine.
126. A machine shall be provided with means of registration that are appropriate for the class, type or design of machine and for its intended service, installation and use.
- SOR/2005-297, s. 41(F).
127. All registrations shall be clear, definite and easily legible under conditions of normal use of the machine.
128. [Repealed, SOR/98-115, s. 9]
129. Where a machine provides a printed record of the registration on a ticket or form, the ticket or form shall contain a statement of
(a) the quantity measured in the transaction or, where permitted or required by these Regulations or by specifications established by the Minister, a start and finish print such that the quantity measured can be calculated by subtraction;
(b) when the computed price is shown, the unit price for the commodity measured;
(c) the name, symbol or abbreviation appropriate to the unit of measurement registered and, as applicable, to the unit price and total price; and
