In Singapore, all pre-packaged goods sold must comply with the "average system" of weights and measures.
What is the Average Quantity System (AQS)?
The Average Quantity System or AQS controls the net weight of, measure of or number of items in pre-packaged goods. The packages must be marked with the weight or volume of the contents in metric. Packers, importers and retailers must comply with three important rules:
The AQS provides fairness to both packers / importers / retailers and consumers. Packers / importers / retailers can increase their productivity by reducing the overfill needed to assure correct quantity while consumers can be assured that pre-packaged goods they purchase are correct and are on average, equal to the net content.
The AQS is an internationally recognised system for determining deficiencies of quantity in pre-packaged goods. It is adopted in Australia, Canada, the European Union, India, Japan, South Africa and Switzerland.
