Aldelo Completes NTEP Certification for Star Micronics Scale
Star Series mG-S8200 Scale Now Available to Aldelo Express POS Users
By: Aldelo, L.P.
The NTEP certified Star Micronics mG-S8200 scale is ideal for small and large capacity measurements for weighing inventory, produce, meats, and deli products. The POS scale capacity reaches up to 18lbs and is compatible with iOS, Android, and Windows and features Bluetooth, USB, and serial interfaces.
NTEP stands for National Type Evaluation Program, an approval system created by the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) and the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM). Scales and other weighing equipment that are NTEP approved have been tested and evaluated to ensure they meet all government standards and requirements. Scale certification is the process of having a state licensed service provider ensure that your scale has been installed and has been correctly adjusted or calibrated.
Any restaurant that buys, sells, or charges based upon weight within the United States must use a "legal-for-trade"
"NTEP certification is important for meeting calibration and compliance laws and protecting both Aldelo Express POS merchants and customers," says Jeff Moore, VP of Operations with Aldelo, L.P. "Before using the scale, merchants must contact their local regulatory authority to find out what they need to do before processing any sales by weight. A merchant that is caught using a non-NTEP certified scale may be subject to heavy fines, seizure of the illegal scale, or work shutdown."
Merchants that use ultra-competitive Aldelo Pay merchant services receive at ZERO cost Aldelo Express Cloud POS, a centralized multi-store restaurant technology platform, and the Masa+ suite of online solutions including QR code ordering and payments.
