Weighbridge Service

BOBS Weighbridge:

Located at Ramakukane Road, opposite Oriental Plaza in Block 3 Industrial, the BOBS weighbridge services include the weighing of bulk weights, loaded or empty haulage trucks or trailers.
The verification of these weighbridges gives third party assurance for both the trader and the purchaser and also aids in enforcement of other legislation on loading of vehicles.

Weighbridge Certification Services:

Weighbridges used for trade must be pattern/type approved and then verified (12 months cycle) by an inspector in accordance with the requirements of the Weights and Measures Act Cap 43:06 and the test procedure for Non Automatic Instruments to ensure;

A verification sticker is applied to weighbridges which meet these requirements. If a weighbridge fails verification or re-verification it is rejected and a rejection sticker is applied. Rejected weighbridges shall not be used for trade until they have been repaired and re-verified to assure their continued compliance with requirements.
The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.
