NTEP Weighing Sector

The charge of the Weighing Sector is important in providing appropriate type evaluation criteria based on specifications, tolerances and technical requirements of Handbook 44: Sections 1.10. General Code, 2.20 Scales, 2.22 Automatic Bulk Weighing Systems, and 2.24 Automatic Weighing Systems .  The Sector’s recommendations are presented to the NTEP Committee each January for approval and inclusion in NCWM Publication 14: Technical Policy, Checklists, and Test Procedures for national type evaluation.

The Sector is also called upon occasionally for technical expertise in addressing difficult Handbook 44 issues on the agenda of the NCWM Specifications and Tolerances Committee.  Sector membership includes industry, NTEP laboratory representatives, technical advisors and the NTEP Administrator.  Meetings are held annually, or as needed and are open to all NCWM members and other registered parties.
