Protecting Consumers and Businesses

The County of San Luis Obispo Weights and Measures program serves the community by safeguarding measurement accuracy and assuring confidence and integrity in the marketplace.

The Weights and Measures program promotes fair and equitable practices that benefit the consumer and assures fairness for the merchant when products, such as groceries and gasoline, are sold by weight, measure, or count.

Both the buyer and seller are protected when Weights and Measures inspectors test store scales, checkout scanners, packages, taxi meters, gasoline pumps, etc.

See the infographic below to discover how our Weights and Measures team helped protect consumers in 2015.
