Calibration

Proper calibration needs to be completed by a state certified Service Company

A complete list of Service Companies can be found HERE.

After calibration, the Service Company will complete a Placed-In-Service report. 

Then your scale will be sealed and ready to use.

Maintenance

It is recommended to have the scale recalibrated each year by a certified Service Company.

Annually an officer from the Department of Weights & Measures will come to the business and inspect the scale.

If the scale fails it can be taken out of service and/or the business will be fined.
