MBS to get rid of suspicious scales

10

The Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) says it is happy that Parliament has passed the Metrology bill which will help the bureau get rid of non-trade scales in the country.

MBS Director General Devlin Chokazinga said when it comes into force, the bill will help end theft as the non-trade scales can be easily adjusted.

“These non-trade scales can be adjusted the way one wants hence perpetrating theft in businesses in the country,” said Chokazinga.

Davlin Chokazinga says the bill will reduce theft.

He added that such scales are not for trade so the bill will help government and MBS to control the kind of scales that enter into the country.

Chokazinga further said that the bureau will start by looking at the scales that are in various markets for sell and they will confiscate them so that people will not find them in the hardware shops or other stores.

According to Chokazinga, the non-trade scales only benefit the owner of the scale since they allow the traders to steal from buyers.
