HELPFUL HINTS FOR SCALE BUYERS
For a scale to be “Certified”, or Legal-for-Trade, it must have an NTEP Certificate of Conformance number marked on the scale’s serial plate. The device’s literature, whether a brochure or instruction manual, must show the NTEP logo which looks like this:
Split Weighing is the weighing of each axle, one at a time, adding the axle weights together for the total vehicle weight. Split Weighing is not a Legal-for-Trade method of weighing. Buying an Axle Scale in lieu of a full-length truck scale does not yield a Legal-For-Trade truck scale.
If you are buying a scale from an online scale retailer, that scale must be calibrated and certified by a licensed scale service provider and registered with the state’s Weights and Measures department before it can be used for commercial trade. Verify calibration with known weight, or call a licensed scale service provider with certified weights for calibration before placing the scale into service at your operation.
