 As the Sealer of Weights and Measures for Lucas County, the Auditor is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of weighing and measuring devices used commercially and that all State laws relating to weights and measures are strictly enforced. Some examples of weighing and measuring devices include gas pumps, store scales, vehicle scales, and bulk fuel tanker trucks.

The Auditor also checks price verification systems (scanners), advertising, packaging, and the labeling of products such as meats, vegetables, firewood, mulch, and milk. This offers the public consumer protections from fluctuations which may occur from faulty measuring devices such as scales and pumps.
  
Weights and Measures protects households and businesses against overcharges, protecting both the buyer and seller and ensuring equity in the marketplace.
