Scales Certification 

The National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) requires that the scale device must be certified as follows: 

NTEP Certificate of Conformance
NTEP certification is issued by NCWM upon successful completion of the evaluation process. This NTEP Certificate of Conformance indicates that the device manufacturer has demonstrated the ability to meet applicable requirements for commercial weighing and measuring equipment in the United States as specified in Handbook 44: Specifications and Tolerances and Other Technical Requirements. NTEP certification is required in most states in the United States.

The  NSOE software does not require certification. The software simply takes the number the scale provides to the software.
