Term Weights and Measures
Code DF-8000.9500
Definition Programs that are designed to guarantee fairness and objectivity in commerce by establishing a consistent system of physical measurements to assure accurate representation of quantity and unit cost of sales products as well as interchangeability and uniformity of manufactured items. Enforcement measures include checking weights of packaged products and the accuracy of weighing and measuring devices such as supermarket scales, gasoline pumps, taxicab meters and rental car odometers. The program may also conduct inspections at retail businesses to ensure that prices charged are the same as those posted or advertised and that scanning equipment is operating correctly.
