The Idaho Board of Scaling Practices is an independent state agency attached to the Idaho Department of Lands for administrative purposes. The primary purpose of the Board is to enforce log scaling standards prescribed by statute and regulations. The Board tests and licenses scaling practitioners and subjects them to routine, unannounced check scales to assure proficiency. Statutes also assign the Board with the duties of log brand registration and the disposition of prize (abandoned) logs.
