It is the National Conference on Weights and Measures, Inc. (NCWM) that creates the standards and process to fairly meet the needs of consumers, businesses, regulators and manufacturers.
The (NCWM) is a professional organization of State and local weights and measures officials. Its members include representatives of industry, government, and consumers. The Conference's mission is to promote the development of uniform, effective State and local weights and measures laws that help maintain a fair marketplace and protect both consumers and businesses. Your State and local officials are responsible for enforcing the weights and measures laws. They use highly-accurate equipment to make sure that weighing and measuring devices, such as gasoline pumps and scales, are in fact giving proper measurement. They work to ensure that every commercial transaction involving weight or measure is fair and accurate. Throughout the millions of transactions that take place every day, your weights and measures officials help guarantee that you get what you pay for.

Every measuring device is checked, tested, and sealed for accuracy once a year. These devices are also spot checked throughout the year.
A state certified inspector is dispatched within 24 hours to start the investigation process.
