Presidium introduces the first portable diamond scale that passes the strict "Legal for Trade" standards. This is the scale that the industry has been waiting for! This scale has a 50 Carat capacity and weighs by .01 Carat. As a multi-function scale, you can also weigh up to 10 grams by .001 grams.
The National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) performs evaluations of weighing and measuring devices for compliance with NIST Handbook 44. Many States require an NTEP Certificate of Conformance for any device to be installed in a commercial application. You can review these states that require NTEP Certificates and States that have Voluntary Registration of Service Agencies and Service Persons (VRSA) by clicking here.
NTEP testing does not "assign a legal for trade status" to a device, it simply indicates that the device evaluated has been found to comply with Handbook 44. In a non-NTEP State, for example, a device may not need an NTEP Certificate of Conformance to be used in a commercial application; it may simply be required to meet Handbook 44 requirements and comply with any additional State weights and measures requirements.
The final approval of the device in a specific installation rests with the State, Local, or Federal weights and measures official who determines if the device meets all Handbook 44 requirements, including installation and suitability requirements.
