In New Mexico, you must complete an Establishment Registration Application to have your scale sealed by the government. 

The business will also need to complete a Certificate of Deposit prior to using the scale.

Contact the office for more information


A state certified Service Company is needed to properly install and calibrate the NTEP scale.

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


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.
