|Scale & Meter Inspections. ICS multiple inspectors annually test all licensed scales and meters in grocery, hardware, and other stores for accuracy. Length meters, primarily used to measure lengths of rope or wire for sale, are also inspected.|
What to expect during an inspection
The multiple inspector may need to see a current scale license to compare actual number of scales in use as compared to the number of scales that are registered on the license.
Inspector needs to have ready access to all scales, therefore someone in the business should have knowledge of the location of each scale.
Test weights, certified as accurate by the ICS Metrology Laboratory, are placed on the scale to make sure the device is accurate.
