Weights and Measures Week: March 1-7, 2008
February 29, 2008
"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.
