The NTEP 1200 is our ntep ceritifed digital scale designed specifically with medical marijuana dispensaries in mind. Due to strict state regulations not all legal for trade scales are premitted to be used in medical dispensaries.
There are three main requirements to be in compliance with medical cannabis dispensary regulations and all medical dispensaries are responsible in ensuring the scales they are using meet these requirements.
The first requirement is to be certified by the NTEP, otherwise known as the National Conference of Weights and Measures. A NTEP certication takes months to obtain and ensures the scale has been thoroughly tested for reliability and accuracy. Many of our customers have reported buying scales that turned out to have fake NTEP certifcations, we recommend consumers visit the offical NTEP website where you can search for the particular scale and verify it does in fact have a legitimate and valid certification. You can view our NTEP certification here and you will also get an offical copy inside your package.
The next requirement is to classified as a "Class II Balance", which is a clasification of scales that meet requirements to be used as "Legal For Trade" meaning you can legally use them to weigh products sold by weight.
The last requirement for dispensaries selling in quantities of less than one ounce is to have a balance that weighs in increments of 0.01g (1/100th of a gram).
Our NTEP 1200 meets all three of these legal requirements, it was certified by the NTEP (Cert #16-094), qualifies for Class II status, and is accurate down to 0.01 grams with a capacity of 1200 grams. You can be confident that our NTEP scale will be exactly what you need for your day to day operations.
If you use a POS (point of sale) system or plan on investing one in the future make sure that it accepts a digital scale with a RS-232 port (most of them). If the software company is saying that you have to buy a digital scale from them you want to find a new software company because this is not true. Digital balances and POS systems that work with RS-232 will be cross compatible. Your software company should be selling you software not trying to get you to buy an overpriced digital balacne from them.
