Program Overview

Welcome to the home page for the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) Weights and Measures Program.  The Weights and Measures Program seeks to insure that consumers receive full measure when they purchase a product sold by weight, measure, or count, and that any statements on packaging which declares a weight or measure are accurate.  Accurate weights and measures are the basis for any quality control process used in industry.  Weights and Measures also regulates the manufacture, renovation, sterilization, and processing of bedding products, to protect consumers from unsanitary bedding, and to assure that they know what kind of material is utilized as fill.  All inspections are complaint based, and may include collection of bedding samples to assure that the filling used is sanitary and made of the material claimed on the information tag affixed thereto.
