Measurements used for trade

7.1. Are there benefits from directly regulating an area of measurement as opposed to providing broad principles of good measurement practice without direct intervention?

Are there benefits from directly regulating an area of measurement as opposed to providing broad principles of good measurement practice without direct intervention?
Measurements used for trade. 7.1.3. Concern as to just how quality can be measured in all instances. Food products such as grown on farms, e.g.. Oats can vary greatly according to the weather, soil conditions, fertilisers used and are not obvious to the consumer.

Exemptions

7.2.2. What are your views on the current listed exemptions?

How are the current listed exemptions not appropriate?
Exemptions. 7.2.2. Taxis are exempt but surely the mileage incurred is gauged by the vehicle's indicator and has been tested from the factory. What happens with Uber ? how can consumers rely on what they are being charged if there is not a screen showing details of their journey? We see notices that the petrol pumps have been checked by official bodies e.g.. Consumer Protection yet car parking meters are exempt which needs consideration.
