NIST also promotes PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38493 uniformity among the states in laws, regulations, methods, and testing equipment that comprise the regulatory control of commercial weighing and measuring devices, packaged goods, and other trade and commerce issues.

These notices are intended to make interested parties aware of these projects and additional information on each item may be given at the Annual Meeting.
