Some 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.
Split weighing is the weighing of each axle, one at a time, and 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 a known weight, or call a licensed scale service provider with certified weights for calibration before placing the scale into service in your operation.
