Legal For Trade Scales

What are Legal for Trade scales used for?

There are multiple uses for a scale that is Legal for Trade. The most obvious reason someone would use one is for buying produce and meat at your local grocery store. Grocery stores use Legal for Trade scales to determine the selling price of these items base on their weight. The second use is at a commercial weight loss company. Some weight loss companies use their client’s weight to factor membership fees, and the last less common application is for sports that use weight for determining competitive weight categories, such as boxing, wrestling and MMA.

It is a legal requirement that weighing equipment be verified as Legal for Trade when a product or service is sold or managed by weight. These scales must meet the standards set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and tested/approved by the National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP). The NIST covers every aspect of an NTEP approved scale from capacity, accuracy, effects on the scale from temperature and humidity and tamper resistance. This means that the scales represent the highest level of accuracy possible in weighing equipment.
