About NISA

NISA - National Industrial Scale AssociationIn 1987, the National Industrial Scale Association was officially formed to support the heavy capacity weighing industry. Until that time, there was no forum for scale users, manufacturers, regulatory agencies and other interested groups to obtain or share information on a purely technical level. NISA is a highly respected professional organization serving the weights and measures community in a manner that no other organization can. A non-profit group, supported completely by our membership dues, publication sponsors and conference attendance receipts, we provide a unique scale information network.

NISA can help you perform your scale-related job better by providing you with the personal contacts and specific information you need.
