Weights and Measures Division is in the field everyday inspecting and certifying public scales, fuel delivery vehicles, octane measure and timers of all types. The Weights and Measures office is also responsible to see that all service stations in Gloucester County are inspected yearly and meters sealed and that service station owners abide by state and federal regulations and statutes. The office also inspects retail establishments to ensure the price on a product is what rings up at the register, these are called "scanning audits" which are done randomly and serious fines are imposed to those businesses that ignore pricing laws. Additionally, the Office of Weights & Measures protects the buyer and seller in all monetary transactions that use weight, measure and count. Investigators from our Weights and Measures Division visit over eight hundred business locations each year. This includes corner stores, large markets, warehouses, gas stations, oil dealers and many other establishments, to test and verify the accuracy of weighing and measuring devices.
Using a calibrated unit for fluid measuring, over 100 service stations, gasoline and kerosene pumps are tested for accuracy on a yearly basis. Standard weights are used to check for accuracy in meats, produce and platform scales. The Office of Weights and Measures also perform spot checks at service stations for octane accuracy. The contents of pre-packaged goods are examined and checked to determine the accuracy of labeling practices.
Consumer complaints are investigated or tested as the situation demands.
