The Department is dedicated to promoting a fair and equitable marketplace in New York State by assuring measurement accuracy. Staff in the Division of Weights and Measures across the state inspect everything from commercial scales and gas pumps to thousands of different packaged commodities, including those packed at the retail store and those packed at factories both nationally and internationally.
Because of this work, buyers can be confident that they will get what they pay for in New York, whether it's a gallon of gasoline or a pound of deli meat. Sellers can also be assured that they are participating in a marketplace based on fair competition. We are proud to protect every consumer and every business in New York State.
