In 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. Our Goals shall be to: -Promote a better understanding of the importance and scope of the scale industry by the public, thus furthering the welfare of those engaged in weights and measures activities. -Encourage proper observance of requirements and regulations pertaining to the operation, business and practices of industrial weighing.
