Type approval for Tamtron YES and Pro wheel loader scales will expire August 24th, 2017


The type approval certificate for wheel loader scale models YES and Pro is only valid until August 24th, 2017. After this date, the initial verification and legal for trade approval cannot anymore be performed for those particular scale models. The same will also apply if the scale is to be moved to another machine (please see “Do you have a legal for trade YES or Pro Scale?”). Scales with valid legal for trade approval can be used for verified weighing as earlier and can be verified in the future as before.

In case you own a YES or Pro scale please read the following.

Do you have a YES or PRO scale that has not been verified for commercial weighing?

Once the type approval for wheel loader scale models YES and Pro ends on August 24th, 2017, the initial verification cannot be performed. In case the scale has not been verified, products weighed with the scale cannot be sold based on the printed ticket. The initial verification must then be performed before the termination of the type approval certificate. Please ask more information from your local Tamtron representative or contact Tamtron directly.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY SCALE IS VERIFIED?
If the scale is verified, you should be able to find a seal and other markings in the scale indicating the validity of the verification. If no markings are to be found concerning the verification, assumption is that no verification has been performed on the scale. In case the scale is intended for legal for trade use, the initial verification must be done before August 24th, 2017.

Do you have a legal for trade YES or Pro scale?

Those YES and Pro wheel loader scales with verification and legal for trade approval installed in the same machine as during the verification can be used for trade approved weighing as usual. The periodic verification is to be done as usual.

Please note that if the scale is disassembled from the machine for which the initial verification was done the scale cannot be verified periodically and it is not approved for commercial weighing. Therefore, YES and Pro scales cannot be transferred to other machines and be approved for commercial weighing after August 24th.
