Weighing & measuring device licenses
Introduction to licenses
All weighing and measuring devices being used commercially in the state of Oregon must be licensed with the Department of Agriculture. You will find a list of the licenses, broken down by device type. The annual license fee listed is for the fiscal year, not a calendar year. The license year runs from July 1st to June 30th and the fees are not prorated. The fee is for each device and is based upon the manufacturer's rated capacity for that device.
