Ian Turner, Principal Trading Standards Officer, Central Bedfordshire.

'One of my responsibilities for METTLER TOLEDO is the legal metrology for our approved products that are put into use for trade. The EMeTAS DVD is a very important tool enabling me to efficiently access Type Approval and Test Certificates for ours and other companies. All the information is in one place, this reduces the arduous task of searching numerous websites without any results'.
Brian Johnson, Technical Services Manager, Mettler-Toledo Ltd.

'I have used EMeTAS from the days of its inception and have seen it develop in a user-friendly way. It would be very difficult for a Notified Body to test new NAWIs without the full access to TACs that EMeTAS provides. It also gives confidence of compliance with TACs when conducting reverifications.'
Michael Harvey, Principal Trading Standards Officer, West Sussex.
