The Benefits of Buying Local
More and more businesses are turning to the Internet for purchases, including scales. However, buying scales on the Internet can often be misleading and result in costly service and support. Knowing exactly what is being purchased from the Internet is essential—especially if the scale is going to be used in buying, selling or shipping applications. The scale and its components may be falsely advertised as it may not meet regulatory standards for commercial scales in its country or state of use.
To avoid potential issues, encourage customers to verify the following information before purchasing any scales or peripheral equipment over the internet:
- Research seller information
- Verify NTEP Certificate of Conformance (CoC) number
- Search the CoC number on the National Conference on Weights and Measures website
- Contact regulatory authorities with any doubt
