Im in the UK.Where are you from? We do not have to have Certified Trade Scales for soap here. Food yes
Thank you - i did look at that site but wasn't too sure.. also sorry for the late reply i didn't think anybody had replied as i didn't get any notifications :-(You can get certified trade scales from most business supplies companies but they will need to be calibrated regularly by TS.
No idea if these are any good, I just googled it

Are you selling soap?I have actually got these scales that i use for soap at the moment and cooking etc -they are hestan blumenthmel precision scales.. think i will just have to get the proper ones
i will be eventually, but before i do i am trying to get everything in place legally so i can, such as scales, insurance, cosmetic safety etc, i would rather do this anyway before i even give soap to my friends, i want to make sure everything is correct and in place. The scales i have aren't certified for trade use i don't think... if they were it would be fab, i wouldn't have to spend out more moneyAre you selling soap?
THANK YOU soo muchMy understanding from TS is that you dont need trade scales UNLESS you are selling by weight. If you are selling slices of soap or any product at a certain price per gram you would need to have trade scales. If however, you are selling i.e 100g soap, prepackaged and labelled, you can provide an estimate of the weight like e100g but it mustnt be less than that advertised.
TBH I dont know anyone who sells prepacked soap who uses trade scales!
Sorry for the late reply. Here's the link to the page... Rules & Regulations for Legally Selling Products - Soap Making Magazinedo you have the soap kitchen link that says it doesn’t need to be trade scales?
