Scanners/Price Verification Inspections

100% price accuracy is the law

Violations will be issued if 100% accuracy is not met during an inspection. Each year a Weights and Measures inspector will conduct a price verification inspection to determine that at least a 98% accuracy rate is met.  If the inspection results in an accuracy rate below 98%, additional inspections will be conducted. 

If you have any questions regarding these matters, please contact the City  of Taunton Weights and Measures Division 508-821-1443.

To help defray the cost of these inspections an  annual fee is listed below based on the amount of scanning devices.

1-3                Scanners (registers) $75.00

4-11              Scanners (registers) $150.00
