In order to protect the purchasers or sellers of any commodity and to provide one standard of weight and measure of length and surface throughout the State, which must be in conformity with the standard of measure of length, surface, weight and capacity established by Congress, the office of the Superintendent of Weights and Measures for the State of North Carolina is hereby established as hereinafter provided. [1927; last amended 1945.] Sec. 81–2. Administration of weights and measures laws.
The provisions of this article (Secs. 81-1—8122] shall be administered by the State Department of Agriculture through a suitable person to be selected by the Commissioner of Agriculture and known as the Superintendent of Weights and Measures. For the purpose of administering and giving effect to the provisions of this article, the rules and codes of specifications and tolerances as adopted by the National Conference of Weights and Measures and recommended by the United States Bureau of Standards and approved by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture are hereby adopted; however, the Department of Agriculture is empowered to make such further rules and regulations as may be necessary to make effective the purposes and provisions of this article, and to fix and prescribe reasonable charges and fees for examining, testing, adjusting and certifying the correct, or incorrect, equipment used in the buying or selling of any commodity or thing, or any equipment used for hire or award, or in the computation of any charge for services rendered on the basis of weight or measure, or in the determination of weight or measure, when a charge is made for such determination. Such rules and regulations and fees and

The board of agriculture is authorized, directed and empowered to establish by order (after public notice as may be determined by it), standards of weights and measures on any commodity in any instance where no standard has been established by the congress of the United States, or by the laws of the state of North Carolina, provided, however, that when a standard is established by congress, or by the laws of the state of North Carolina, such standard shall supersede the standard or standards established by the board of agriculture. Provided, that this section does not authorize the board of agriculture to establish a standard log rule measure. [1945; last amended 1949.] Sec. 81–3.
