Weights and measures are the various devices used for weighing and measuring a product. These devices include gasoline pumps, heating oil truck meters, grocery store scanners, delicatessen scales, pharmacy scales, and jewelry scales.
Massachusetts law requires that municipalities inspect these devices for accuracy and have the devices re-calibrated as necessary. Typically, these devices are inspected annually. In certain instances, random price verifications may be performed throughout the year, such as for items at grocery stores.
