Measured Change is the culmination of a partnership between 12 West of Scotland Council Trading Standards (TS) Services.

The West of Scotland Group Notified Body, hosted by Dumfries and Galloway Council (DGC) is now designated as a Notified Body under relevant EC Directives and Quality Standards on behalf of the partnership.  Other Councils contribute specific functions to the partnership which is governed within the Quality Management System.

The process that was undertaken and partnership that resulted has so far delivered specific improvement across partner Council areas in service resilience and sustainability, skills development, systems standardisation and quality assurance with further development to be considered collectively.  This strengthens and sustains a function which contributes to governing an estimated £212 billion worth of consumer goods sold nationally controlled by weights and measures legislation, with a further £280 billion worth of industrial weighing and measuring taking place annually.
