Annual inspections of scales at grocery stores and gasoline meters (pumps) at filling stations keep weights and measures inspectors busy all year long. Other scales and measuring devices not often noticed by the general public include taximeters, truck and livestock scales, gas, electric and water meters for mobile homes, LPG (propane) and vehicle tank meters,which are also inspected annually. When you see the Monterey County Seal on the device it means that its accuracy was verified.

Devices found to be out of compliance with standards are ordered out of service and cannot be used until corrected by the owner or by an authorized repair company. A device can only be placed back into service by a CDFA-licensed service agent or by a licensed Weights and Measures inspector. To maintain accuracy standards, the Department inspects devices after repair and re-attaches a County seal of accuracy.
