“Legal for Trade” Compliance
Scales used to buy or sell products are “Legal for Trade” scales. The State of Texas has specific requirements for these scales — they must be calibrated and put into service by a licensed scale company, or you risk getting fined.
If you buy scales off of the internet and do not have them put into service by a licensed scale company in the State of Texas, you risk getting fined for each violation.
Nicol Scales & Measurement is fully compliant with the State of Texas’ requirements. NSM is a “Licensed Service and Inspection Company” in the State of Texas, and our Technicians are licensed by the State of Texas.
Our company policy is to send a RWM-780 form to the State of Texas for each legal for trade scale that we put into service. Read the requirements for Immediate Consumption here.
