The Department of Weights and Measures protects consumers by maintaining and
monitoring the accuracy of measurement for many items. Some examples include:
- Cords of Wood
- Food Establishments with Scales
- Gas Pump Meters
- Oil Truck Meters
- Pawn Shops
- Scrap Yards
- Taxi Cab Meters
This is done by randomly selecting and testing packages for weight accuracy, by enforcing
laws and regulations regarding weights and measures, by investigating consumer complaints, and by issuing licenses in accordance with Connecticut State Statues.
Any new stores with scales must contact the Department of Weights and Measures for inspection before opening. This includes gas stations, scrap yards, as well as anything sold by volume.
Please call 203-576-7596 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment for and inspection or to make a complaint.
