Learn about our Seals

A Weights and Measures seal lets consumers know that a measuring device has been tested and found to be operating correctly.

Our seal is good for one full year after testing. That means if we seal a device in November or December 2018, you'll see the 2018 seal on the device for most of 2019. We added the date range to our 2019 orange-and-blue seals to make them easier for consumers to check at a glance.

If you see a seal that's two years or more out of date, it may indicate that a store moved a device out of storage and hasn't been tested recently. If you spot a seal that is two years or more out of date, or one from another state, please report it to us online or by calling 216-443-7035.

Cuyahoga County does not seal devices in the City of Cleveland, which has its own Weights and Measures team. 

Our seal is good for one full year after testing.


The Department of Consumer Affairs’ mission is to make sure people who live or shop in Cuyahoga County get what they pay for.
