Measurement Matters Newsletter

Formerly known as the Weights and Measures Connection, OWM's quarterly digital newsletter has been renamed to Measurement Matters.  Any newsletter editions dating from April 2021 or prior will remain archived with the previous name, Weights and Measures Connection.

Welcome to the Office of Weights and Measures newsletter "Measurement Matters." Measurement Matters is published periodically throughout the year and provides brief articles of interest to the weights and measures community. It is intended to highlight current issues, respond to frequently asked questions, and share news from across the country. Measurement Matters is primarily an electronic document that we have attempted to make easier to view and read on a computer screen. We are always interested in suggestions for topics of interest and feedback for making improvements to future issues. Let us know what you would like to see in the next issue of Measurement Matters.

To receive the newsletter in your email inbox, simply create an account in the OWM Contacts System.  The following is a list of helpful instructions.
