I need some help.

we are packing products into 10 to 22g pack size. it is dried product.

we have check weigher but it only does minimum weight.

can any help if we need to do manual checks on minimum  10 packs / 30 min etc. it is acceptable by trading standard?

i am confused as if our check weigher do not accept any pack below nominal weight as it works on minimum weight.

we dont have  a option to set T1 or T2.


thanks for your help

If I understand your question, should you do checks to ensure you are not giving away money?

Generally, in the US, you have to meet minimum weight specified on the package. You certainly can overpack, but why would you want to?

Are you saying that your checkweighers will not kick out a package that is "x" grams overweight?

Is the product sold to the consumer as such or are seeral packs combined to a finished product?

In which country? Eu or outside?

What pack has has the declaration acc. to FIR?

Do you put the "e" on pack?
