Every NTEP scale must be calibrated by a Licensed Technician. A list of Technicians can be found HERE.
It is also up to the technician’s discretion to seal the scale or not.
After a technician calibrates the scale, the business owner would need to contact the office of Weights & Measures (803-737-9690)
The State inspector will place an inspection sticker on the scale if it passes.
*The state of South Carolina does not require scales to be locked/sealed after calibration.
The state will come to check the scale once a year.
The sticker that is provided will be a different color every year to track the expiration date.
It is also recommended that the store regularly checks the calibration of the scale, the Weights & Measures officer may stop by unannounced to perform an assessment.
