How to become a Servicing licensee ? – Australian Government, Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources

Servicing licensees

Servicing licensees test and verify measuring instruments used for trade. They can employ verifiers and nominate them to verify instruments under their servicing licence.

Servicing licensees help build trust and confidence in the accuracy of measurements used to determine the trade value of goods.

Find a servicing licensee

To obtain a list of servicing licensees with the relevant sub-class of licence to test and verify your trade measuring instrument please download the attached list.  The servicing licensees shown have given consent for their licence information to be published on the Departmental website, however due to licensees operating in varying geographical locations we do not provide their phone contact or address information.  To obtain the relevant contact information and to clarify where the licensee specifically operates please conduct your search on the internet to locate their particular contact information.
