With Good Weighing Practice™ (GWP), METTLER TOLEDO has developed a global weighing guideline for the evaluation, operation and testing of weighing systems.

Optimum Weighing Results

With its risk-based approach, GWP® has 5 key steps that helps you make the right decisions where it really matters, covering all important stages of the weighing process for optimum weighing results. 

1. Evaluation
GWP® carries out a risk analysis to determine the degree of accuracy and minimum weight required for your weighing process.

Good Weighing Practice2. Selection

Helps you choose the most suitable balance for your application, which will help you minimize both risks and costs and ensure compliance.

3. Installation
Ensures professional, documented installation and commissioning on site and provides operator training.

4. Calibration
GWP® allows compliance with tolerances at various degrees of accuracy. The calibration certificate provides the corresponding measurement uncertainties for various process tolerances and safety factors.

5. Routine Operation
GWP® has now identified all risks and recommends the most suitable package of measures.
