The weights and measures department is responsible for checking a number of things for accuracy. Some of these include:
If you are going into business or you are already in business and will be using a scale, please contact our office for more information. Not all scales can be certified.
Check the National Type Evaluation Program for a cerificate of conformance, this will list the acceptable scales for commercial use.
You will need a manufacturer name and model to check for the certificate on the NTEP website link, which is below.
There should be a label on the scale with all the information including serial# & capacity.
These services are performed to insure the consumer is getting the value advertised on the product and protect the buyer and seller.
Further, if you believe a gas pump or scale did not perform properly for the goods you received, please contact the Auditor's Office, Weights & Measures Division 937-484-1600.
