Servicing Licensees

If you need help finding a servicing licensee to verify a measuring instrument, you can send an email to the Trade Measurement Licensing team at

In your email you should include your location and the type of instrument you wish to have verified.

NMI can then provide details of servicing licensees in your area who may be able to help. NMI is not able to recommend specific service providers.

Servicing Licences

Individuals and organisations involved in verifying measuring instruments used for trade are required to hold a servicing licence. Licences are granted where applicants meet the licence criteria under the National Measurement Act and the conditions of licence provided in the National Trade Measurement Regulations. Under trade measurement legislation, servicing licensees have the responsibility to ensure verifiers are competent to verify measuring instruments.

If you have any questions about applying for a servicing licence please contact us on 1300 686 664 (option 2) or
