The director shall offer a voluntary registration program for persons who install, adjust, repair, service, or test commercial weighing and measuring equipment. The purposes of the program are to:
allow privately employed individuals to place newly installed or repaired weighing and measuring equipment into commercial service, pending an inspection by the division; and
minimize the compliance burden on owners and operators of weighing and measuring equipment by simplifying installation and repair and by reducing the amount of time the equipment is out of service.
A nonregistered person is not prohibited from repairing commercial weighing and measuring equipment. However, Minnesota Statutes, chapter 239, prohibits commercial use of equipment that has been repaired by a nonregistered person until the equipment has been approved by the division.
