About NTEP

What is NTEP?

The National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) is an evaluation program administered by the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM). This program is funded through the fees paid by manufacturers and distributors of commercial weighing and measuring devices. Manufacturers, who wish to market their products in the United States, may be required to have their device evaluated by NTEP, in order to comply with certain state and/or local laws and regulations.

When is NTEP certification required?

State and/or Federal regulations require that scales used for selling, purchasing, exchanging, custody transfer, or establishing the cost for services or hire on the basis of weight have an NTEP Certificate of Conformity.

Best Buy Scale offers several NTEP certificated products. This will be noted in the specifications on the product page.
