To assure fairness in commerce: assure the accuracy of scales, pumps and other ways of quantifying commodities that are paid for by proportional weight or measurement.
The weights and measures division benefits all Elkhart County buyers and sellers in commercial transactions. The division is responsible for checking the accuracy of all commercial weighing and measuring equipment in the county, from gas pumps to grocery store scales.
In addition, the inspectors also do courtesy inspections for all school scales. We also do inspections for doctors offices and factories that request our services. We also do routine inspection of packages to ensure correct weights at all grocery stores.
The division investigates and resolves consumer complains relating to weighing and measuring equipment accuracy. For gas pump complaints we need to know the specific pump number and grade. If you have a complaint, please call or email us.
