Error rates vary within each of Ohio's 88 counties.
Ohio jurisdictions are very responsive to calls concerning the possibilities of an error in a weighing or measuring device. A Weights and Measures inspector will usually inspect a site within 24 to 48 hours of receiving a complaint.
If a device is found to be inaccurate, the inspector can reject, condemn or in extreme cases, confiscate the device. An approval and/or a security seal is not attached until the device is serviced by the owner and/or operator and passes all further inspection and testing. Records are maintained for all reported complaints.
