The Department of Weights and Measures seeks to ensure that consumers receive full measure or count when they purchase commodities. There are no fees associated with our services, everything we do is funded by the county.
The following services are provided by the Division of Weights and Measures:
- Testing of Weighing and Measuring Devices
- Inspection of Commodities
All inspection equipment is certified annually by the State of Indiana's own Metrology Laboratory which uses volumetric standards that are traceable to those of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
. Indiana is 1 of only 6 state laboratories in the nation to become certified under NIST's National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program.
