Below are a few of the more popular questions we receive about NTEP certified scales. If you have question(s), please contact our customer service department and we will work to get you the correct answer.

What is an NTEP certified scale?

Scales need to be sent to NCWM to be evaluated. If they are approved, they will receive a National Type Evaluation program CoC#, signifying ntep certification. Technically, it is always a good idea to have your local scale company install your scale so you can be certain of its accuracy. Typically, when a device is approved, that will include multiple weighing capacities and platform sizes as well.

What makes a scale certified?

The term "certified" can mean different things to different people. Our scales that are NTEP approved are also what some folks would refer to as NTEP certified as well... Technically, this is true. However, if you need a certified scale with optional rear display, we recommend that you clarify what exactly the state or governing body is requiring. Do they just want a scale that has a CoC#? Do they want a scale that has a CoC# and has been "put into service" & "certified" by a local scale company? This can apply to everything from a retail scale with tare and unit price to a fishing scale with optional remote display.


Should I Purchase an NTEP Certified Scale or just buy a non-approved scale?

It's almost always a good idea to purchase a NTEP approved scale, especially in a commercial environment where items are being purchased or sold based on weight.

NTEP Certificates of Conformance are issued by the National Conference on Weights and Measures. They evaluate and test the scale to make sure it is accurate and reliable. If you’re investing in a scale for your business or you're purchasing something that is being weighed on a scale, you want to make sure the scale that is being used is accurate and certified.

Most states require sellers to use a legal for trade scale. Even if your state doesn't require that, it's still a good idea to use one anyway. Trust us, we've seen some of the scales out there that are "non-ntep" and some of them are ok and some are terrible. Plus, if you are caught by the state inspector using a non-ntep scale, you could have that scale shut down. So be sure to use a scale with NTEP Certificate of Conformance (CoC) number. Every NTEP certified scale will have a CoC# on it somewhere, usually on the side.

With cannabis becoming a legal item for sale in more areas, it's important to determine what requirements exist for each state in regards to that market.

Finally, you should have your scale checked at least once a year. It's a good idea to contact your local or state weighing and measurement office to find out what you need to do before processing any sales by weight. This can vary between states. However, most local inspectors will use certified stainless steel calibration weights to inspect your scale and many will also seal it so that it can't be tampered with.

Coffee shops, hardware stores, produce markets, farmers markets, convenience stores, precious metals sellers and many more industries rely on these digital scales every day. Some choose to operate their equipment via standard 110 VAC power while others choose alkaline batteries or even a rechargeable battery.
