Right of Appeal and Judicial Review

Any person aggrieved by the performance of any operation in connection with a trade measuring instrument by a Legal Metrology inspector or an Authorized Verifier can make an appeal to the Director to have the decision reviewed.

The appeal must be made in writing within seven days, and should be sent to:

Director of Legal Metrology Service
NSAI, 1 Swift Square, Northwood,
Santry, Dublin 9, D09 A0E4 Ireland

The information should be specific, explaining the precise way in which the Legal Metrology inspector or the Authorized Verifier is claimed to have misapplied any regulatory provision or misperformed or misinterpreted any testing operation.

Having carried out an investigation, the Director may reject or allow the appeal.

Under certain circumstances, the Director’s decision may be subject to judicial review. However, if you are considering judicial review, you are strongly advised to seek legal advice to confirm that this remedy is applicable to your case.
