Who Needs An Inspection?
Any individual or business who is conducting a sale whose value is based on weight or quantity must do so on a certified scale, or with a certified measurement device.
What Type of Scales?
A frequently asked question is, "can kitchen scales be used for sales?"
In short, no. To be considered legal for trade, a scale must fulfill certain standards established by the National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP). The NTEP evaluates the performance, features and options, and operating characteristics of the scale based on its set of applicable standards. When purchasing scales for your farm or business make sure they are NTEP Certified.
