Weighing and Measuring Devices Approved for Commercial Use


By regulation, all commercially used weighing and measuring devices must be approved prior to sale or use in New York State. New York’s Type Approval Program has been active since 1930 and today is working in concert with the National Type Evaluation Program under the National Conference on Weights and Measures and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

The document linked below contains a listing of all weighing and measuring devices that have been approved for commercial use in New York State. It covers Certificates of Approval from number 5470 to number 10065 issued from January 14, 1985 through March 16, 2018.

Approvals issued before January 14, 1985 may be found in the original Circular 725 and in the first through fifth Supplements.

Find a Device

Finding a particular device in this publication is a two step process:

  1. Begin by finding the manufacturer code in the Index of Device Manufacturers, which is sorted in alphabetical order by company name. The manufacturer code permits rapid cross-referencing of device manufacturers who have changed names or merged with another company.
  2. Once you have the manufacturer code, you search the Listing of Approved Devices for the manufacturer code and then under the model column for the particular model. The sort order is by manufacturer code (alphabetical), by certificate number (decreasing order, most recent first), and by device model number (alphabetical). Be sure to check all entries listed for that manufacturer code for the model in question.
