A complete list can be found HERE.

Calibration should be done before an inspector from Weights & Measures comes to seal the scale.

The Service Company will need to submit a Placed-In-Service Form to the Department of Weights & Measures.


It is recommended to have the scale recalibrated once a year to ensure accuracy

At random an officer from Weights & Measures will visit to inspect the scale

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