Scale Inspections

How can I schedule an inspection for my scales? What are the fees?

You can submit a Scale Inspection Request Form online. Note: You will be redirected to a web page where you must register an account with the City of New York.

DCA will bill you for the scale inspection fee after the inspection. Our DCA inspectors cannot accept payment. For easy reference, the fee amounts for scales inspected by DCA are provided below:
• Scales up to and including 15kg (33lb) capacity, fee is $20 per scale.
• Scales over 15kg and including 300 kg (661lb) capacity, fee is $40 per scale.
• Scales over 300kg and including 1,500kg (3,307lb) capacity, fee is $100 per scale.

The fees are set by New York State Weights and Measures Regulations.
