Legal for Trade NTEP Balances

These NTEP legal for trade digital balances are rugged, dependable and ideal for buying and selling based on weight. When we say "Legal for trade" we basically mean scenarios where products are sold directly to the public based on weight. The example that most people can understand is the scales that you see at the farmers market when customers are buying fruits and vegetables. In that example, a container of food is sold to a customer using the net weight of the food multiplied by a price per pound.

Most consumers will come across this example in places like candy stores or produce stands. In order for a scale or lab balance to be NTEP approved, the item was sent to a testing lab and it passed certain standards and complies with Handbook 44 before it can be called NTEP approved or legal for trade. A few of the more popular applications where you are likely to see a NTEP approved item would be things like retail sales of products directly to the public, packaging items for sale by weight in a store, large truck weighing scales, and recycling centers where customers bring aluminum or copper in for money.

Can Laboratory Balances Be NTEP Legal for Trade?

Now as for small laboratory balances, there are some of these precision instruments that are NTEP approved. You might see these used in numerous industries such as medical marijuana or cannabis dispensaries & jewelry and pawnshops who are weighing gold and silver that customers are looking to sell. One area that does confuse people sometimes is the readability of the legal for trade balances. Often, you will see two different readability numbers. The one that has an "e" will be the actual "legal for trade readability". So for example a balance might be capable of reading 0.01 grams (two decimal places). However, the balance was only approved by NTEP to read 0.1 grams (one decimal place). So it's legal for trade readability will be 0.1g. In addition to our lab balances, we also offer NTEP certified scales in various sizes.
