This code of practice is intended to assist those involved in all aspects of testing, operating and maintaining the meter measuring systems on road tankers.

The use of such systems is controlled by legislation introduced by the Department of Trade and Industry, and enforced by the Weights and Measures Authorities. Regulations (made under the Weights and Measures Act 1985) exist which specify the requirements for these meter measuring systems. Notes for the guidance of trading standards officers have been issued but no code of practice for users has been available hitherto. This publication was produced to correct that situation. It should be noted that the code applies principally to metered deliveries of gas oil, derv and kerosine.

Formerly PMM Part X, S4, reapproved 1996.
