83-207.Same; rules and regulations. The secretary of agriculture may adopt rules and regulations necessary for the administration and enforcement of the provisions of chapter 83 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto. As a part of such rules and regulations, the secretary of agriculture shall adopt standards setting forth specifications, tolerances and other technical requirements for all weights, measures and weighing and measuring devices, and point-of-sale systems. These specifications, tolerances and other technical requirements shall conform, insofar as practicable, to the specifications, tolerances and other technical requirements for weights, measures and weighing and measuring devices established by the national institute of standards and technology. The secretary of agriculture shall prescribe by rules and regulations the appropriate term or unit of weight or measure to be used whenever the secretary determines in the case of a specific commodity that an existing practice of declaring the quantity by weight, measure, numerical count, or combination thereof, does not facilitate value comparisons by consumers, or that such practice offers an opportunity for consumer confusion.
