Weighing & measuring devices


The Weights and Measures Program assures equity in trade and fairness in the marketplace through routine unannounced inspections of commercially used weighing and measuring devices. Program inspectors are strategically located throughout the state and conduct annual examinations of commercial devices for conformance with design and performance requirements.

Precise field standards are used in these examinations and are certified through the program's metrology laboratory.

Devices licensed and/or examined by the Weights and Measures Program include store checkout scales and scanners, gas station pump meters, truck scales, livestock scales, propane bottle fill and truck delivery meters, produce scales, and railroad track scales.
