The Weights and Measures (SDT) Unit of the Industry and Business Ecosystem Division at the Ministry of Finance and Economy issued a reminder notice during spot checks at markets in Brunei-Muara and Tutong districts recently.
The warning was issued for failure to comply with Weights and Measures (Verification) Regulations, 1994 for using a weighing machine with expired registration. The trader was required to present themselves to SDT Unit’s office within seven working days.
