Any restaurant that buys, sells, or charges based upon weight within the United States must use a “legal-for-trade” scale.
NTEP certified scales are required by restaurants when weighing any product and selling it directly to the customer based on the weight provided. NTEP certification provides consumers with the confidence that they are getting what they paid for by requiring a high degree of readability on the scale. The certification also confirms that restaurants are weighing products accurately and not giving away profits.
NTEP stands for National Type Evaluation Program, an approval system created by the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) and the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM).
