BEIS Consultation Choice on units of measurement: markings and sales

28 July 2022

The government is committed to reviewing the current law to identify how more choice can be given to businesses and consumers over the units of measurement they use for trade, while ensuring that measurement information remains accurate. BASA Members may feel that, in our sector, a reversion to imperial units is unhelpful and so we would encourage you all to submit responses to this consultation to make sure that your views are heard

The evidence gathered from this consultation will inform the government’s plans to provide a choice on weights and measures for consumer transactions.

BEIS want to hear from a broad range of stakeholders that interact with all consumer transactions based on units of measurements – including businesses, trade associations, enforcement authorities, consumers, and consumer organisations.
