The mG-Scale should be calibrated by a state certified Service Company.
A complete list of certified Service Companies can be found HERE by filtering the search by “scale”
After proper calibration, the Service Company/Agent will complete a Placed-In-Service form.
This form will put the business on a list for state inspectors to check annually.
You can also contact the Department of Weights & Measures for help with this process.
It is recommended to recalibrate your scale annually through a certified Service Company.
An officer from the Department of Weights & Measures will randomly stop by the business to inspect the scale is measuring properly.
If the scale fails inspection the business will be fined.
