          With the exception of instances specifically mentioned below, this charge must
          always be invoked
           NB Charged "per day, per TSO" (i.e. 2 x TSO’s at an appt = 2 call out charges or 1 TSO at an appt
           for two days = 2 call out charges).

        2 Delays
                                                                                                                  £80.00         £16.00         £96.00
           In any circumstances when Trading Standards staff attend premises (other than
           an Area Office) at an appointed time and a delay occurs, either before testing
                                                                                                                   Per hour (min charge qtr hr)

        3 Out of Hours Working (subject to staff being available)
          A premium, as below, must be added to the fee or hourly rate, as appropriate, for all work carried out at the request of

           provides all the appropriate acceptable weights there will be no specialist equipment charge.

           (b) Where instruments incorporate remote display or printing facilities then the fee will be increased by 50%.

        F GENERAL
        A MEASURING INSTRUMENTS FOR LIQUID FUEL AND LUBRICANTS
            NB 1 - Requests for tests on accuracy of a dispensing pump will always result in a charge being levied, even in circumstances where the test
            results from an investigation into stock loss. This will be call out fee plus the hourly rate plus VAT, ie S.74(4).

            If, as a result of the fee paying test, the pump is found to require reverification then this will in addition attract the normal verification fee.

            NB 2 - Cutback appointments :-
            When bookings are taken, it should be clearly ascertained whether we are being called in solely to carry out verification work or whether we
            are being called in to carry out accuracy tests with the possibility of verifications if necessary.

            In the former case, the charge will be based on the verification fees set out below

            In the latter the charge will be based on a S.74(4) test and the hourly rate plus VAT, with verification fees applying to any meter subsequently
            submitted for stamping ( see Fee Scenario 4 (c) ).

            In any case, once a meter is submitted for verification and we start the test, then the appropriate verification fee should be charged, regardless
            of whether the fitter has already broken any seals or whether the measure is subsequently found to be adjustable

            Notes
            (a) Gilbarco Highline Duo (single nozzle) regard the combined unit (1 & 2 pumps) as a multi product (common nozzle) instrument. See
            scenario 3(g).

            (b) Multi grade common nozzle instruments, modified as authorised to deliver one grade. See scenario 3(f).

            (c) In the case of multi product dispensers NWML opinion contained in WM 484 (Sept 93) states that stamps need not be obliterated on all
            meters using the same display when one meter fails upon testing to meet the prescribed error allowances.

            Furthermore, the obliteration of the stamp protecting an individual pulser need not be deemed as obliteration of the stamps protecting other
            pulsers and meters that use the same display.

            The effect of this opinion is that, for the purposes of Regulation 24 of SI 1995 no.1014, only those meter systems (meter and pulser) which
            fail to meet the prescribed error limits should be considered for obliteration of the stamp.

          (a) wet hose type with two testing liquids                                                                      £134.50          £26.90         £161.40

            NB 1 If more than two liquids are tested, each additional liquid will incur an extra charge of                 £40.00           £8.00          £48.00
            NB 2 In the case of combined wet/dry hose tankers , the charge will consist of the normal wet hose type fee plus an additional sum based on
            the hourly rate of charge and the extra time taken to test the dry hose system.

            NB 3 If, during inspection of a tanker meter, seals protecting calibration are broken (either because the meter is outside tolerance or the
            operator wishes to reduce the measure) and the officer agrees to a full verification while on site, the charge will comprise the verification fee
            plus the specialist equipment fee but will exclude the call out charge.
