Weights & Measures

Napa County Weights and Measures Scale

The mission of the Napa County Department of Weights and Measures is to provide fair competition and equity in the marketplace and to ensure that the interests of the buyer and seller are protected through educational, inspection and enforcement programs.

Device Registration Fees Proposed to Increase

Recently the Weights & Measures Department at the direction of the Board of Supervisors completed an independent fee analysis to review our fees and make necessary adjustments as needed. Based on our recent fee analysis, and the authorized fee structure provided in Business and Professions Code Section 12240 and 13350, we are proposing fee changes. Please see the Fee Change Memorandum for specific details.
