NTEP - Legal for Trade Bench Scales
In the United States, if you are conducting business by weight, the scales that you use need to be approved under the NTEP system (National Type Evaluation Program). This means that the scale has to have a C.O.C. (Certificate of Conformance) number. This number proves that the scale type has been tested and the National Conference on Weights and Measures affirms that the scale is capable of giving an accurate weight over time and in varying temperatures.

The benefit of buying a bench scale is the pillar that lifts the indicator to a height that is easy to read. They are also much more durable, and often times come in much higher capacities.
