Container Weight FAQ
Q: Given that there is no single international approval for weighing equipment, does this mean that different standards will be applied around the world, making it uncertain whether equipment can be approved internationally or whether values given will be accepted globally?
A: This is a National issue.
Within the scope of SOLAS, this is a matter for determination by signatory States. It is the case, however, that all equipment used (whether for Method 1 or Method 2) will need to meet the applicable accuracy standards and requirements of the State in which the equipment is being used.
