National Metrology Laboratory
The SQCC Legal Metrology Department enforces the Weights and Measures Act Cap 31 with related amendments and subsidiary legislations. The Department has six regional offices that are responsible for the verification of instruments used in trade throughout the country.
The offices are situated in Hargeisa and Berbera.
In addition to the four regional offices, the Prepackage Control division ensures that the labeling and quantity of the prepackaged goods conform to the Sale and Labelling of goods regulation, and the Volume and Flow division ensures the verification of fuel road tankers, depot meters, dipsticks, fuel dispensers, and pressure gauges.
SQCC has had discussions with Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) and soon will start the verification of electricity meters
