Welcome to the Office of Weights and Measures newsletter "Weights and Measures Connection." Connection 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. The Connection 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 Connection.
