2. Facility agents shall inspect and log the inspection of each scale to verify it is clean and reading accurately at least once a month and each time the scale is moved.
3. Scale inspection logs shall indicate the date, method of accuracy verification, and by whom the accuracy is verified.
4. The licensee's scale shall be designed for the type of weighing or measuring needed for the licensee's facility type;
