Does your Jewelry Scale comply with the State of Texas Department of Agriculture’s Weights and Measures registration and usage requirements?

  • Legal for Trade Scale – must be a NTEP Class II or III approved scale (Marked on Scale)
  • Scale Accuracy Verified and Placed in Service for Legal for Trade Use – by a Licensed State of Texas Scale Service company
  • Scale Registered for use with the State of Texas – Department of Agriculture Weights and Measures
