Only verifiers deemed competent and registered by NMI may verify instruments used for trade. Recognition kits (RKs) assess your competence against performance criteria related to your work. These performance criteria are set out in units of competency. Successful completion of a recognition kit will lead to the awarding of a Statement of Attainment which will allow you to be registered by our Licensing Section as a verifier.

Read the Recognition Kit Instructions for Verifiers and Weighbridge Operators (PDF) and ensure you have practical experience that allows you to generate evidence related to test reports and transaction records.

NOTE: All kits submitted from 1/4/2021 include mandatory skills assessment. Evidence of your skills in verifying instruments can be provided by submitting a pre-recorded video, or after organising a video call or in-person observation with an NMI-appointed skills observer. For more information on this part of the assessment process, and these options, please read the Instructions for observation assessment and instructions given in the kit.

Note: Dimensional measuring instruments.  

If you wish to verify only simple dimensional measuring instruments, select kit 13.1 only. 

If you wish to verify weighing and dimensional instruments incorporating a non-automatic weighing instrument, you must also select a kit for limited weighing relating to the class and capacity of the weighing instrument component.

If you wish to verify weighing and dimensional instruments incorporating automatic packaging conveyor weighers, you must also select the kit for limited weighing relating to subclass 6.7.

Note: Grain density measuring instruments.  

These instruments incorporate the use of a weighing instrument which needs to be tested under a class 6 licence. The person testing the weighing instrument needs to have the appropriate Statement of Attainment which is usually subclass 6.1.
