9. Sanctions

UKWF members are required to trade equitably and fairly. The UKWF will ensure that these high standards of integrity are maintained.

For that reason, justified complaints against a member about work undertaken in accordance with this Code may result in the UKWF’s approval to provide a calibration service under this Code being withdrawn. In such cases, the UKWF logo and any references in the members’ documents, contracts or calibration certificates to compliance with this Code will be withdrawn immediately.

Failure to implement the Code, or to observe its requirements may result in sanctions being applied to the UKWF Member concerned: serious or persistent breaches of the Code may result in the expulsion of the Member from the UKWF.

UKWF Members are reminded that to comply with the Code they are required to include the UKWF logo and a statement of compliance with the Code in their Calibration Certificates. The logo and statement are "Trade Descriptions" within the meaning of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968, and any person who is not a UKWF Member, or any Member who does not follow the Code is liable to prosecution. A conviction resulting from such a prosecution will be regarded as a serious breach of the Code.
