Weights & Measures

The Weights and Measures Division protects the integrity of commercial measurements through certification of weighing and measuring equipment, evaluations of net quantity and pricing representations of packaged commodities and ensuring that marketing practices provide the ability to make price and quantity comparisons.

The division inspects annually nearly 36,000 commercial weighing and measuring devices from railroad track to supermarket point of sale scales, meters used to measure bulk deliveries of refined fuels, liquefied petroleum gases, and pumps at service station and convenience stores. In addition the division annually conducts over 75,000 random inspections of packaged commodities to verify that these packages contain what the packer represents as the net quantity.
