"Whether detergent, fruit or gasoline, I can trust I am getting what I pay for."
Every day, Americans make purchase decisions-at the grocery store and the gas pump,
to pay a taxi fare, feed a parking meter, or order a delivery of home heating oil.
These diverse "daily necessities" have one common ingredient: the trust you can have
that everything you weigh, pump or measure is accurate because of a national weights
and measures program.
It is the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) and your state and local
weights and measures inspectors that ensure a reliable system-providing confidence
that you will get what you pay for.
