For your awareness, NVLAP guidelines prohibit the use of their logo by any customer, end-user, reseller or other entity that is not NVLAP accredited. While Rice Lake Weighing Systems’ metrology labs are accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), this accreditation does not transfer to those who purchase and/or use these weights or services. Only NVLAP accredited facilities are allowed to use the NVLAP logo or depict themselves as accredited.
Single weights should be packaged individually in a vial or pouch, or wrapped in acid-free, no-lint paper, then bubble wrap or foam. Weight sets need to be secure within their case. Even accessories such as milligram covers need to be protected so they cannot move. Cases may also be wrapped in bubble wrap or foam. Do not use packing peanuts, as they create static electricity.
All weights need to be secure in a container designed to withstand the shipping process. Please remember, clean room cases do not provide suitable protection for shipping and should not be used.
