With increased use of weighing scales in WA state it is essential that the scale is accurately calibrated by a service agent for the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

The WSDA will conduct unannounced inspections. If the scale is inaccurate or fails to meet the criteria, it will be rejected and corrective measures must be made. You must contact a service agent that is registered with the state to have it repaired.

To ensure this does not happen having the scale calibrated every 6 months is critical. This will prevent costly mistakes and down time the scale is out of compliance and cannot be used.
