Weights & Measures

If you are looking for guidance on Colorado’s weights and measures laws, the Colorado Department of Agriculture has put together a helpful brochure, Questions and Answers on the Colorado Weights and Measures Law.  The short, easy-to-understand brochure explains how the laws protect consumers and ensure fairness in the marketplace. 

For information specific to weights and measures for petroleum, visit this page from the Colorado Department of Labor & Employment’s Oil and Public Safety division.

Outside of oil and gas, Colorado’s weights and measures are overseen by the State Metrology Laboratory.  Visit their website for standards, regulations, calibration services, and information on shipping weights.
