"Weights and Measures may be ranked among the necessaries of life to every individual of human society." -John Quincy Adams, 1821
The purpose of the Montgomery County Auditor's weights and measures program is to assure that equity prevails in the marketplace for both buyer and seller. The Auditor's officials work to ensure integrity of all commercial weights and measures in the county by inspecting over 7,000 gas pumps, 2,200 scales, check over 4,500 packages and perform scanning tests on over 37,000 items at more than 530 retailers each year.
All our weights and measures inspectors are certified by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, Division of Weights and Measures.

Weights and measures inspectors also rely on information from consumers to keep the marketplace fair. Please don't hesitate to make use of the consumer complaint form or the report bad gasoline form to tell us about any problems you've encountered in the local marketplace.
