What is Nomination?
Section 49 of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009 provides for – Offences by companies and power of the court to publish the name, place of business, etc., for companies convicted. Section 49 also gives you the opportunity to nominate a person to exercise all such powers and take all such steps as may be necessary or expedient to prevent the commission by the company of any offense under the Act. A different person can also be nominated for different branches and units.
Benefits of Nomination
Where an offence is committed by a company, and the company has nominated a person then penal liability under the Act substantially reduced.
