When Using Scales


  • Look for the current year County Auditor Weights and Measures seal on the weighing device.
  • See that net weight and total price indications show zero before weighing the product.
  • Make sure the correct price per pound is entered.
  • In over-the-counter sales, the scales and their quantity value indicators must be in plain view of the customer.
  • Question the merchant if you are in doubt about a transaction.
  • If more than one scale of the same type is in operation, note the number of the scale (such as at check-out counters) in case you notice a problem.
