When buying or selling products (including precious metals like gold and silver) based on weight, the scale must be a “legal for trade” or “NTEP Approved” device. The scale’s accuracy must be verified and calibrated, and it must be put into service by a scale service company that is licensed by the State of Texas. Failure to do so may result in fines or in the scale being tagged and put out of service. The scales here are NTEP approved, and Nicol Scales & Measurement is Licensed by Texas Weights and Measures, so we can put the legal for trade scale you choose into service for you.
