Description and Service Details
Description (Service) Measurement Canada monitors the accuracy of measuring devices, such as gas pumps, meters and scales, through a variety of inspections and compliance improvement strategies. The agency also investigates complaints of suspected inaccurate measurement and institutes corrective action where necessary. 
Inspections are part of a thorough process of measuring device evaluation, approval, and monitoring to ensure consumer and business confidence in the fairness and accuracy of measurement-based financial transactions. 
Before being placed into service, measuring devices such as gas pumps or scales must be inspected and certified to be measuring accurately. Electricity or natural gas meters are subject to individual initial inspection or a sampling program designed by Measurement Canada. 
Inspections are required at set intervals for measuring devices used in retail and wholesale petroleum * dairy * retail food * fishing * logging * grain and field crops * mining. 
Electricity and gas meters are also subject to mandatory inspection frequencies, most of which are re-inspected on the basis of sampling. 
The majority of these inspections are performed by authorized service providers.
