Richmond Scale Ltd. has performed many legal for trade certifications in the presence of an excise duty officer for tank scales used in distilleries. In accordance with the Excise Duty Program and the Excise Act, a tank scale is designed for measuring the mass of liquids and must meet the following specifications:
A licensee will advise their regional excise duty office that they have acquired a tank scale that meets all the specifications in the Excise Act and wish to have the scale examined for approval for excise duty purposes.
The approval process for tank scales includes on-site testing by an authorized service provider, to be witnessed by an excise duty officer. The licensee must make arrangements with an authorized service provider to perform the on-site testing. The authorized service provider is to provide legal for trade documentation. Once the on-site testing is complete, the excise duty officer will place an excise duty seal on each of the components of the tank scale to prevent tampering.
