The Division of Weights & Measures provides support, protection and confidence in daily transactions between consumers and businesses.
Our program strives to deliver cost effective, professional, regulatory enforcement while incorporating the latest inspection techniques, training and equipment that becomes available.
We belong to a unique group of professional regulatory officials that perform a valuable community service through out the country. In some states over 50% of an average family's income is spent on items sold by weight, measure or count. The program provides a set of weights and measures standards to which industry adheres to and consumers can count on. What would consumers do if this system did not exist? Bring their own measuring devices to make certain that they got their fair share for each purchase? It is not something each of us considers, but applying uniform weights and measures standards to commercial transactions is one of the most important supports to a strong national economy.
