The Weights and Measures Department exists to ensure equity in the marketplace.

The department is responsible for enforcing all accuracy requirements and standards relating to weight and measurement devices in the Town of Framingham. These devices are used in the sale of:
  • Food
  • Gasoline
  • Home heating oil
  • Numerous other products used by consumers

We help insure that consumers are receving the goods for which they are paying. The department annually tests and certifies all weight and measurement devices in the Town of Framingham.

Inspections
The department conducts random inspections of devices to ensure that they are being used as designed, and that security wires and seals are intact.

Security seals are placed on the adjustment mechanisms of the devices to prevent unauthorized tampering with the calibrators, which can change the accuracy of the product being weighed or measured.
