Registration

The business needs to contact a certified Service Company to begin registration. 

A list of state-certified companies can be found HERE.

The company will install, calibrate, and seal the scale. 

Calibration

Calibration needs to be completed by the Service Company before the scale can be used for commercial purposes.

Maintenance

Each year the scale should be recalibrated to ensure accuracy.

It is recommended to have a certified Service Company do the calibration.

An inspector from the Weights & Measures Department will randomly visit the store to test the scale.

If the scale fails inspection the business is subject to fine.
