The Kansas Metrology Laboratory provides calibration service for mass and volume standards for metrological traceability to the International System of Units (SI). The laboratory services other laboratories, government functions, licensed service companies, and various industries.

The types of standards calibrated by the laboratory include mass standards, weight carts, test measures, and provers. These standards are often used to calibrate weighing and measuring devices that are used for commercial sales, laboratory work, and manufacturing.   

The Kansas Metrology Laboratory maintains a Certificate of Metrological Traceability from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Quality measures taken by the laboratory to ensure current procedures are used and calibration results are correct include participation in proficiency testing programs and measurement assurance programs. 

The current Certificate of Metrological Traceability from NIST lists the scope of measurements provided by the laboratory and may be found at the NIST State Measurement Laboratories website.
