"A.  The Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services shall inspect and test weights and measures offered for sale or commercially used only on a periodic basis as he deems necessary pursuant to § 3.1-928, Code of Virginia.
In addition, the Commissioner may accept the inspection of any registered service agency or any certified service technician in the employ of the service agency as official inspections.  Such inspections may still be subject to random inspections by the Commissioner or his agents."

(This amendment eliminates the $4.00 annual inspection fee for weighing and measuring devices included in the 2004-2006 Appropriation Act and provides the VDACS with an additional $680,000 from the general fund in the second year to support the weights and measures program.)
