Dabawenyos reminded to follow calibration, sealing of weighing scales every 3 months

The Davao City government has reminded Dabawenyons that all instruments for determining weights and measures used in consumer-related transactions must be tested, calibrated, and sealed every three months.

Failure to have the instrument retested within the prescribed period will subject the owner to a surcharge of 500 percent of the prescribed fees.

The City Treasurer’s Office is the department in charge of retesting and recalibration as provided in the Davao City Revenue Code.

The city government said that using any scale or instrument of weights and measures that have not been sealed or with an expired license is subject to penalty.

If there are also fraudulent acts related to the ordinance will also warrant the filing of the appropriate case in court, it added.
