Weights and Measures Inspection Certificate Completion Manual
Device Inspection Certificate—Continued
Device Information Section
Note: When more then one component for a single device is to be captured on the certificate, the primary information will be recorded first and only the primary component will contain the results of the inspection.
For volumetric devices:
- Primary component (device entity) - measuring element (meter)
- Secondary components: register, ATC, pulser, etc.
For gravimetric devices:
- Primary component (device entity) - measuring element (base)
- Secondary components: electronic indicator, computer, load cell, etc.
Weighing Systems With Multiple Load Receiving Elements (see STP-26)
TYPE 1 - Multi-plex - A system where only one load receiving element can be selected and operated at a time. Multi-plex systems - Two or more load receiving elements, designed to be used independently, are connected to a single approved Multi Channel indicating element. Each load receiving element shall be listed as a separate device on the inspection certificate, and must be identified in some manner to prevent confusion (Scale A, Scale B, etc.). The same indicating element shall be listed for each of the load receiving elements and shall be identified as being multi-plexed.
TYPE 2 - Multi-Deck - A system where two or more load receiving elements can operate at the same time.
Scenario A - Multi- Deck - two or more load receiving elements are connected to an equal number of Approved Single Channel indicating elements). Output may be combined in a computer or other unapproved non-metrological indicator.
Each load receiving element and indicating element shall be listed as a separate device on the inspection certificate, starting from the leftmost load receiving element as viewed from the normal operators position (in case of any uncertainty, stand facing the load receiving element on the side where the signal cable or transverse lever exits the device). Each load receiving element shall be identified as forming part of the overall multi-deck system.
Scenario B - Two or more load receiving elements are connected to a single Approved Multi Channel indicating element. The Multi-Channel indicating elements may handle up to the maximum number of load receiving elements as described in the Notice of Approval.
Each load receiving element shall be listed as a separate device on the inspection certificate, starting from the leftmost load receiving element as viewed from the normal operators position (in case of any uncertainty, stand facing the load receiving elements on the side where the signal cable or transverse lever exits the device). The same indicating element shall be listed for each of the load receiving elements and shall be identified as being multi-channel. Each load receiving element shall be identified as forming part of the overall Multi-Deck system.
Scenario C - Two or more load receiving elements are integrated through a Junction Box and the aggregate signal is output to a single channel Approved indicating element. This is not considered a Multi-Deck Weighing System.
Each load receiving element shall be listed as a separate device on the inspection certificate, starting from the leftmost load receiving element as viewed from the normal operators position (in case of any uncertainty, stand facing the load receiving elements on the side where the signal cable or transverse lever exits the device). The indicating element shall be listed second and the remaining load receiving elements, in order, are then listed as components of the system.
This is a description of the device recorded on that line of the Inspection Certificate (i.e. computing scale, test weight, vehicle scale, bulk meter, fuel dispenser, etc.)
For devices with components, the second line (and following lines if there are many components) would describe the component (i.e. electronic register, ATC, computer, etc.). The only information shown for the secondary component will be device description, serial number and approval number.
Only one device per line is to be entered on the certificate. The only exceptions are standards, device types 01 (trade weights), 90 (dynamic length measures), 91(static measures), and devices with consecutive serial numbers when initial factory inspections are performed at the manufacturers premises, and the client is unknown. Devices with consecutive serial numbers entered on the same line of the certificate must also have the same results and "as found" infraction otherwise a new line on the certificate must be used.
Note: Each certificate must be issued in the name of the client. If the permanent location and name of the client is unknown, the certificate must be issued in the name of the authorized service provider. In the case of an initial factory inspection, the inspection certificate should also be assigned to zone 800 when the name of the client is known but the permanent address of where the device will be located is unknown. Every effort should be made to obtain the client name and permanent address of where the device(s) will be located. One copy of each certificate must accompany each device to its permanent location.
13) Serial Number
The alpha-numeric identification number of the device or component as indicated on the serial plate of the device must be recorded. The primary device will be on the first line followed by the secondary component(s) on the next line(s). All devices require a serial number. Do not leave this field blank. If the serial number cannot be ascertained, you should contact your nearest Measurement Canada Office who will supply you with the serial number of the device by consulting Measurement Canada's database. If the serial number cannot be found, a unique number should be created. The following format is strongly recommended: technician # followed by certificate #. If the ID plate is missing, a new ID plate should be created containing all the information required by the Weights and Measures Regulations or Specifications. The inspection marking location shall include an X to indicate that the plate and the inspection marking are not the originals.
If there is more than one device per line (see paragraph 12), the serial numbers must be consecutive and recorded on the certificate as, for example A123456 to A123499. When specifying a range you must also enter a quantity. In this case the quantity would be (44) and should be clearly shown in brackets on the same line following the description of the device. The word "TO" must now be used to indicate a range. Dashes will no longer be accepted to designate a range of consecutive serial numbers. Effective immediately any dashes recorded in the serial number field of the inspection certificate will be captured in Measurement Canada's data system as a character of the device's serial number. (Note: This requirement is based on a decision made by Industry Canada's Legal Services.)
Note: The serial number is the key element for identifying devices within establishments. Measurement Canada's data system will not accept two devices with the same serial number within an establishment; it will consider both devices as the same one.
Note: A single dispenser or refueller which is approved as a complete unit with an integral register will have a single serial number for the entire device. In this case, the single serial number is recorded. For fuel dispenser and refueller serial numbers, where more than one meter is housed in a single cabinet and when the individual meters are identified by a common serial number (primary unit number) and a meter designator, record the primary unit number followed by the meter designator. When a dispenser has been retrofit with an approved replacement register or ATC kit, two serial numbers should be recorded; one for the dispenser, one for the register. Most other bulk metering systems will consist of a primary component and one or more separately approved secondary components each of which will have their own information plate and serial number.
14) Capacity and Interval
The legal capacity of the device indicated on that line of the Inspection Certificate must be shown in terms of quantity and unit of measurement. (For heavy duty scales, this is the initially inspected capacity to which the device was inspected). The approved capacity may be captured in the comments section of the Inspection Certificate, if appropriate. The terms tonne & tons are not acceptable in Measurement Canada's data system. Use the corresponding kilogram or pound capacities.
Note 1: If the device has one unit of measure, then record the Max & d in this unit of measure. If the device is switch selectable for units of measure, please ensure that the metric unit of measure is recorded in the capacity field of the certificate and a note is made in the comments that the device is capable of indicating in imperial (or other) units of measure as well.
Note 2: The Actual Scale Interval (d) must be captured in the capacity field. If the Verification Scale Interval (e) and Actual Scale Interval (d) are not the same, then capture the Actual Scale Interval (d) in the capacity field and enter the Verification Scale Interval (e) in the comments.
For volumetric measuring systems, the approved maximum capacity of the device is to be recorded in the capacity field. The actual rate of flow at time of testing may be captured in the comment section of the inspection certificate.
For a Multiple Dimension Measuring Device (MDMD) enter the device data (description, serial number, etc.) on the first line of the certificate as normal and the first capacity/interval field will reflect the largest certified dimension. Typically this will be length. Enter L followed by the maximum certified dimension for length, followed by an ( x ) and the minimum certified interval size for length.
Move down a line on the certificate and enter data only in the capacity/interval field. This time, enter W, followed by the maximum certified dimension for width, followed by an ( x ) and the minimum certified interval size for width.
Move down a line on the certificate and enter data only in the Capacity/Interval fields. This time, enter H, followed by the maximum certified dimension for height, followed by an ( x ) and the minimum certified interval size for height.
Capacity and Intervals must be entered starting with the largest certified dimension. Typically, this will be the Length. If another dimension is the largest, begin with that dimension. In that case, the two remaining dimensions are to be entered on the subsequent lines. This is important as only the largest dimension on the first line will be captured in the database.
Dimensions: Data should be entered starting with the largest maximum certified dimension. Each entry is to be preceded by the letter L (length), W (width) or H (height) as appropriate.
Intervals: The certified interval for each corresponding dimension is to be entered. When an MDMD is configured with a multi-interval axis, it is the minimum certified interval for the axis that must be recorded. The other interval information may be captured in the certificate comments.
Identification Plate: In case of a difference between approved and certified dimensions or intervals, the identification plate shall reflect approved values.
Data Entry Instructions: The capacity and interval dimensions recorded on the same line as the device data (description, serial number etc.), of the inspection certificate are to be captured in the designated capacity and interval fields of the STARS device entry screen. The dimensions listed on the two subsequent lines for that device, are to be captured in the comments preceded by the W, H or L, with the capacity and interval separated by an ( x ).
Note 1: For gravimetric devices, when the scale interval is captured on the inspection certificate, it should be recorded in the capacity field for example as (100,000 kg x 10 kg). If there is not enough space in the capacity field of the certificate, the interval may be captured on the following line.
Note 2: For Multi-Interval and Multi-Range devices, the largest certified capacity and interval is to be captured in this field. When appropriate, the smaller intervals and ranges could be captured in the comments section of the certificate.
15) Device Approval Number
The device's approval number must be entered in full starting with the alpha prefix and followed by a four digit number. If the approval number also contains a letter "T" or "C", it should be recorded. The following are examples of complete approval numbers, i.e. SWA-1151, SD-WA-0614, SWA-T2084, AM-4511T, AV-2210, AM-5219C, etc. The approval number must be entered for the device and, if applicable, each of the listed components. Revisions to Notices of Approval are not to be recorded on the inspection certificate.
Device Approval numbers can be found on Measurement Canada’s website at Measurement Canada / Notice of Approvals Database.
16) Device Type
The device type code represents the general type of device. Volumetric devices (dispensers, refuellers, bulk meters) are differentiated by capacity only. Describe the device accordingly. See Appendix 1.
17) Device Sub Type
The sub type code describes in more detail the type of device. See Appendix 1.
Note 1: A vehicle scale not operated by a person familiar with and experienced in the operation of that scale, is deemed "unattended". This also applies to a vehicle scale who has a trained operator for business during the day but not during business at night.
Note 2: If a previously certified vehicle scale is modified to unattended operation, this will require recertification of the device. See bulletin M-08 (rev. 2) section 3.1 for details and, if you have any questions on whether or not an inspection is required or what tolerances are applicable, the Measurement Canada Regional Gravimetric Specialist should be contacted.
18) Product Code
The product code identifies the product being measured by the device. The product code field is mandatory for volumetric devices, and should be recorded for all device types whenever the device is used to measure a specific product listed in Appendix 4. Measurement Canada's database system defaults to product code 11 for volumetric devices.
Note: A decision was made by Measurement Canada to separate out Distillates from Gasoline products. As a result, a new product code 10 for Distillates (Diesel Fuels, Fuel Oils, Stove Oils, Bio-diesel and Bio-diesel blends) has been added to Appendix 4, and product code 11 has been modified to designate it specifically for Gasoline (All grades of gasoline and Alcohol blended gasoline) products. Product Code 11 remains the default code when a meter measures both gasoline and distillates.
19) Inspection Type
The inspection type code represents the type of inspection conducted on the device(s) indicated on that line of the Inspection Certificate.
Note: The following inspection codes are to be used by an accredited organization. Registered organizations will be using inspection codes that start with the letter R, as described in the "Registered Organization - Inspection Types" section that follows:
|Note: An initial inspection should be coded as inspection type A1 or A2. If the device is not complying with the regulations, it should be coded A1 or A2 and rejected. The marking should remain on the device as required by section 22 of the regulations. When the device is subsequently inspected, it should be inspected under inspection type A1 or A2 until it complies.|
|A1||Initial Factory Inspection by an accredited organization|
|A2||Initial Field Inspection by an accredited organization|
|A3||Subsequent Inspections by an accredited organization|
|A7||Re-inspection by an accredited organization|
|A0||Inspection type to remove a rejected device when the device has permanently been removed from trade use. (Inspection Type A0 can only be used by an accredited organization, with "As Found" infraction type "E" and inspection results "E").|
|Note: An initial inspection should be coded as inspection type R1 or R2. If the device is not complying with the regulations, it should be coded R1 or R2 and rejected. The marking should remain on the device as required by section 22 of the regulations. When the device is subsequently inspected, it should be inspected under inspection type R1 or R2 until it complies.|
|When an inspection is performed by a recognized technician of a registered organization not in the presence of a Measurement Canada inspector (follow-up inspection with the technician), the following codes must be used:|
|R1||Initial Factory Inspection by a registered organization|
|R2||Initial Field Inspection by a registered organization|
|R3||Subsequent Inspections by a registered organization|
|R7||Re-inspection by a registered organization|
|R0||Inspection type to remove a rejected device when the device has permanently been removed from trade use. (Inspection Type R0 can only be used by a registered organization with "As Found" infraction type "E" and inspection results "E").|
|When an inspection is performed by a recognized technician of a registered organization in the presence of a Measurement Canada inspector (follow-up inspection with the technician), the following codes must be used:|
|M1||Initial factory inspection by a registered organization in the presence of Measurement Canada|
|M2||Initial field inspection by a registered organization in the presence of Measurement Canada|
|M3||Subsequent inspection by a registered organization in the presence of Measurement Canada|
|M7||Re-inspection by a registered organization in the presence of Measurement Canada|
See Appendix 5 for all Inspection Type Definitions.
20) As Found
The "as found" represents the device's compliance with the Weights and Measures Act and Regulations or its "as found" status on arrival at the establishment's premises. This "as found" infraction code must be recorded on the inspection certificate prior to the adjustment and/or repair of each device. For initial inspections, an "as found" infraction for the degree of measurement inaccuracy is not required if the result is V - Verified. All other "as found" infractions are still required, when applicable. The device's as found status is very important. It is an indication of the performance of the marketplace and will assist Measurement Canada (along with other factors) in determining frequency of certification periods for device types within various trade sectors and the focus of Measurement Canada's marketplace monitoring programs. "As Found" errors identified by authorized service providers and Measurement Canada inspectors will also be compared to identify trends.
If more than one infraction error is found, the most important infraction from the prioritized list below is to be recorded in the "as found" field. Any other errors are to be recorded in the "Comments" section as described in section 24).
|Note 1: A device must not be non-verified where device Usage U is the only contravention. The infraction code U must be utilized in instances where the authorized service provider believes a warning letter is warranted and wishes to bring the matter to the attention of Measurement Canada.|
|Note 2: Use of the F (Fraud) code has been discontinued effective immediately. The act of committing fraud is related to actions perpetrated by people (traders) and not generally a device related issue, except in the case where devices may be altered to aid in the fraudulent act. Recognized technicians who suspect fraud or fraudulent use of a device are to immediately report their findings to a local Measurement Canada office who will take the appropriate actions. The most appropriate "as found" code "I", "N", and inspection result "R" should be entered on the inspection certificate, and details entered into the comments section.|
|Degree of measurement inaccuracy identified:|
|D9||>9 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|D8||>8 but <=9 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|D7||>7 but <=8 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|D6||>6 but <=7 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|D5||>5 but <=6 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|D4||>4 but <=5 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|D3||>3 but <=4 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|D2||>2 but <=3 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|D1||>1 but <=2 tolerances disadvantages consumer|
|9||>9 tolerance disadvantages trader|
|8||>8 but <=9 tolerances disadvantages trader|
|7||>7 but <=8 tolerances disadvantages trader|
|6||>6 but <=7 tolerances disadvantages trader|
|5||>5 but <=6 tolerances disadvantages trader|
|4||>4 but <=5 tolerances disadvantages trader|
|3||>3 but <=4 tolerances disadvantages trader|
|2||>2 but <=3 tolerances disadvantages trader|
|1||>1 but <=2 tolerances disadvantages trader|
|N||Non Measurement. A device that meets applicable performance, installation and use specifications, but that violates one or more specifications for design, composition or construction.|
|I||Installation. A device that meets all applicable specifications with the exception of applicable installation specifications.|
|U||Usage Infraction. A device that meets all applicable performance specifications but is used in a manner that causes a weighing or measuring infraction.|
|M||Metric Infraction. To be utilized only when devices are not configured in metric units of measurement in the retail petroleum, retail food and retail home furnishings trade sectors and when there are no other infractions.|
|E||Erase/Remove Device (Infraction type "E" can only be used with Inspection Results "E").|
21) Result (Inspection Result)
The code represents the result of the device inspection indicated on that line of the Inspection Certificate. The following is a list of codes and their meanings, as well as clarifications on when these codes are to be used:
Footnote 1 Reject (R) Codes are to be used when the consumer would be disadvantaged due to the error. This could be caused by a device used for selling, over-indicating, or a device used for buying, under-indicating. See Note 3 below.
Footnote 2 Warning (W) Codes are to be used where a device is found operating with any measurement errors deemed in favour of the consumer; operating with any non-measurement infractions; or installation errors not deemed to favour the trader. See Note 3 below.
Footnote 3 When coding a Rejection or Warning, it is imperative that the technician properly ascertain all modes of usage for the device. If the device may be used for both Buying and Selling, then any measurement error is to be coded as REJECT (R) error.
|V Verified||When the device is within the allowable limit of error.||Note: Service Contract requirements may apply limits of error that are more restrictive than the legislated limits of error for the device. Adjustments to bring devices within these "Service Contract" requirements may be noted in the comments section of the Inspection Certificate and Test Reports but are not reported as adjustments for Certification / Monitoring purposes.|
|W Warning||Error against Trader Footnote 2,Footnote 3||W and R are to be used when an error greater than the limit of error or other infraction is discovered, and the device CANNOT be brought into compliance during the Inspection/Service. The device must be Re-inspected at a later date, i.e. after servicing to correct the error, for it to be Verified.|
|R Rejected||Error against Consumer Footnote 1,Footnote 3||W and R are to be used when an error greater than the limit of error or other infraction is discovered, and the device CANNOT be brought into compliance during the Inspection/Service. The device must be Re-inspected at a later date, i.e. after servicing to correct the error, for it to be Verified.|
|E Erase/Remove||Where device was rejected and the owner decides to replace the device. (The removal of a device using inspection results "E" can be included on the same certificate along with another entry of the same device where that device was previously inspected).|
Note: All inspection results must be accompanied by an "as found" infraction code except when the device meets all the requirements, on arrival at the establishment's premises. The device's as found status is very important. It is an indication of the performance of the marketplace and will assist Measurement Canada (along with other factors) in determining frequency of certification periods for device types within various trade sectors and the focus of Measurement Canada's marketplace monitoring programs. "As Found" errors identified by authorized service providers and Measurement Canada inspectors will also be compared to identify trends. See paragraph 20 for the prioritized list of "as found" infractions.
22) Trade Sector
The trade sector code is a four digit numeric code entered on each line of the inspection certificate for every device inspected. This sector code should represent the primary source of revenue generated by the product weighed or measured for trade purposes, by the device found at the establishment. Each device is therefore subject to the requirements of the trade sector applicable to the product being measured. A device used to measure products in multiple sectors will have to meet the requirements of the most stringent sector and the trade sector entered on the inspection certificate should reflect the most stringent sector. See Appendix 3.
23) Should be recertified before (Date)
The Voluntary Periodic Certification Program for Devices subject to the Weights and Measures Act was revoked January 1, 2012.
Measurement Canada inspectors as well as authorized service providers (ASPs) are to continue to indicate the recommended re-verification date on the verification stickers and inspection certificates, as set out in the table that can be accessed on Measurement Canada's home page ("Recommended Certification Frequencies for Devices" under Trade Sector Reviews).
Measurement Canada launched the Voluntary Periodic Certification Program for Devices on November 27, 2006 outlining the instances when a recertification date is required, and what devices and trade sectors form part of this program.
The recertification date represents the recommended frequency of certification for devices within specific trade sectors established by Measurement Canada. Recommended frequency of certification periods have been established for the various device types within these trade sectors, and a chart Frequencies by Trade Sector for Devices Included in the Voluntary Periodic Certification Program for Devices posted on Measurement Canada's website. The appropriate recertification dates are to be recorded on the inspection certificate for the device types and trade sectors defined in this document. The recommended recertification date should be entered numerically, in the appropriate column of the inspection certificate, and in the format yy / mm.
Note: A service station gasoline dispenser (trade section 1801 - Retail Petroleum and Fuel) for example is inspected and certified on September 20, 2007. The recommended certification frequency is two years, therefore the next recommended recertification date is September, 2009.
24) Comment Line No.
A number must be recorded on each device line for which there is a corresponding comment in the Comments box. The same number must be recorded in the comment box so that the comment and appropriate device can be associated at the time of data entry.
Note: Each comment line # is unique and there can be only one comment number for each device line. For example, if the same comment applies to 2 or more devices then each device line must have its own comment number. (i.e. comment #1,#2,#4,#5 - kg label must be replaced.)
25) Comment Line
Enter the comment line number(s) applicable to the comments recorded beside each device line as described in 24) above.
Note: Comment line #0 will associate comments to the whole inspection certificate and not to a particular device. (Comment line #0 can be used in reference to the annotation when the annotation is common to all devices recorded on the inspection certificate.)
Comments which the recognized technician deemed necessary for data capture (i.e. reasons for device non-verification, annotations or restrictions, etc.) are to be written on a designated line and a check mark () added in the capture box prior to and adjacent to this line. This is also a good place to enter Truck numbers when doing Truck Meters. Information for when approvals allow the use of audit trails instead of the usual wire seals should be recorded in the comments section. (Refer to specific approval document.) You are asked to attach an additional inspection report to the certificate when there is not sufficient space in the comment section to record the information for each device, and cross-reference both documents.
A list of comments (annotations and restrictions) and definitions has been included for your use, as follows:
- Broken / missing seals
- Name plate missing
- Repairs not carried out
- Unreadable serial number
- Defective indicating element
- Repeatability / section error
"This device is not suitable for buying or selling precious metals at the retail level. Industrial or wholesale use only."
Mandatory annotation applicable to the initial inspection of any Class II device with e > 0.010 g (10 mg).
"This device is not suitable for buying or selling gemstones."
Mandatory annotation applicable to the initial inspection of any Class II device with e > 0.001 g (1 mg), including those devices noted above.
"Not to be used to weigh a NET load of less than « xxx » kilograms."
Minimum weight that can be weighed on the device as configured. This annotation should be used where there exists a possibility that the device will be used below this minimum.
"Portable Installation Valid Until « date »."
Annotation required when placing a portable vehicle scale in a portable installation. Date is generally no more than one year after the inspection date. Actual date to be determined by inspector. See STP-7 for more information.
"For Prepacking Use Only."
For devices which are designed for use in prepackaging situations only, i.e. (Retail Food).
"Approaches were not completed at the time of initial inspection. Device owner agrees to complete the approaches in accordance with section 63 (NAWDS), by May 31, XXXX."
For vehicle scale systems installed in the winter months, when it is not always feasible to provide either permanent foundations or approaches due to ground frost.
Note: When an initial inspection is scheduled by Measurement Canada or an authorized service provider, a letter of intent to complete the approaches meeting legislative requirements by May 31st of the following year, signed by the perspective device owner, shall be sent to the District Manager of the nearest Measurement Canada District Office.
"This device not to be used for multi-draft weighing"
This annotation should be used whenever a short-deck vehicle scale is inspected and there is reasonable expectation that it may be used to weigh vehicles which are too long to be fully supported by the load receiving element. A typical situation is a 10m scale at a gravel pit with truck and pup combinations.
"This device was inspected at the factory as a portable unit. All permanent installations will be subject to pertinent requirements."
Annotation to be used where a portable device is inspected in a factory situation but may ultimately be installed permanently.
"Suitable access to be provided/maintained for subsequent testing"
Annotation used whenever access to the device is likely to be subsequently impede following initial inspection. Typical installations include livestock scales which often have corrals built around them which makes subsequent access with test equipment impossible.
- Defective ATC
"Meter # « X » shall not be used at flow rates less than [minimum flow rate]."
In cases where it is possible to operate a meter below its minimum flow rate.
"Meter # « X » product depletion test conducted at XXX lpm."
In some cases a device owner or service company will slow down the delivery rate of a system so that it may pass the product depletion test. As they may increase the flow rate following the inspection, it is desirable to know what rate the test was done at.
"The device(s) described above are not to be used in trade when the automatic temperature compensation feature is not in use."
Annotation required to advise the trader that the ATC function cannot be turned off without the permission of a Measurement Canada inspector. See Bulletin V19 rev. 1, section 4.2.4.
Note to Data Entry Personnel: When this comment is found on an inspection certificate, it should always be data entered into the comment section of STARS (whether the capture comment field on the certificate has been checked or not).
For Liquid Control (LC) meters: (use comment line 1) and then in comments
Unit #12 meter #1 products 1, 3, 6, 10 730 = 537.7654 P/L
Translated this means truck 12, meter 1, was set up to measure gasoline as products 1, 3, 6, 10, and the density value was set at 730 and the pulses per litre as left were 537.7654
For Mid:com registers:
Unit# 6 Meter #1 730 switches 1,0,9,8,4,5,2
For Accuload registers:
Meter# 6 Rack# 2 Basek = 13P/L MMF= 1.000 MF1=1.0017 @ 1350LPM MF2 = 1.0021 @ 600LPM Density 730 ATC and APC
- For scales tested at the factory and that can be affected by the effect of gravity (usually small capacity devices): "The initial inspection was performed at the factory. The scale(s) may require readjustment upon relocation due to changes in acceleration due to gravity."
- For fluid measuring devices (gasoline dispensers, vehicle or rack mounted meters): "The device was calibrated for and can only be used in trade to measure (generic name of the product and density)." Or, in cases where the meter was not tested on the actual product, it is desirable to know what liquid and factors were used: "Meter # « X » was not tested on [product name] P/L of XXX.XXX from [alternate liquid name] used. This may result in under registration errors for this product."
Typical generic names and density:
- Propane 510 kg/m³ (LPG)
- Gasoline 730 kg/m³ (G)
- Fuel 840 kg/m³ (F)
- Aviation Gas 100/300
- Jet Fuel
When any comment regarding restrictions, etc. is recorded on the Inspection Certificate, the trader's (or his representative) signature must be obtained. If the trader refuses to sign the Inspection Certificate then the recognized technician of the authorized service provider will enter "CHOSE NOT TO SIGN" in the signature section. It is not necessary to have the trader sign the certificate for all comments made by the recognized technician of the authorized service provider; only those that are serious in nature.
27) Trader's Signature
This space is provided for the trader's or the trader's agent's signature. A signature is required whenever the Inspection Certificate contains a rejection, the device has been restricted in any way or the certificate has been annotated. In short all certificates that are not unrestricted verifications should be signed.
If the trader refuses to sign the Inspection Certificate then the recognized technician of the authorized service provider will enter "CHOSE NOT TO SIGN" in the signature section.
28) Authorized Service Provider's Recognized Technician's Signature
The signature of the recognized technician of the authorized service provider who performs the inspection certifies the inspection of the devices on the Inspection Certificate.
29) Recognized Technician's Assigned Number
The authorized service provider's recognized technician's number is a six digit alphanumeric code assigned by Measurement Canada. The first four digits are the Authorized Service Provider's organization number (see "Top of Certificate" section for details), and the last two digits represent a unique number for each recognized technician in the organization.
- Two recognized technicians employed by an accredited organization with the inspector number 025, will have the following numbers A-02501 and A-02502 respectively.
- Two recognized technicians employed by a registered organization with the inspector number 123, will have the following numbers R-12301 and R-12302 respectively.
The recognized technician must clearly print the whole number in this field when completing an inspection certificate.
The date of inspection must be shown numerically. When an inspection spans over more than one day, the day the inspection is concluded and the Inspection Certificate is issued must be the date shown. It must be entered in the format yy/mm/dd.
Note: The date on a replacement certificate should be the same date as found on the original inspection certificate which is the date the inspection of the device occurred.
Back of the Certificate:
To permit an understanding of the certificate by the owner or the person in possession of the device(s) described on the certificate, the codes and their description as shown in section 18, 19, 20 and 21 of this manual must accompany the certificate, in a bilingual format. The "Canada" Wordmark must also be shown. It is suggested that they appear on the back of the certificate, however, they could be annexed to the certificate, on a separate document, as long as the certificate refers to it. See Use of the Canada Wordmark and Measurement Canada's corporate signature for more information on the appropriate use of these identifiers by Authorized Service Providers.
