The Nevada Public Weighmaster Bond Process With Jet

Once you have paid for your bond, Jet will prepare the Public Weighmaster’s Bond for you and mail it directly to the Department of Agriculture, unless you wish to do so yourself. If you are mailing the bond, send it to:

Division of Consumer Equitability

Sparks, NV 89431

Jet will send you a renewal notice when your bond term is nearing its end. Just select your new bond term and provide payment. Jet will take care of the rest.

If you no longer need the bond, just email Jet a request to cancel the Public Weighmaster’s Bond at bonddept@jetsurety.com. Our team will notify the Department to begin the 30-day cancellation period. Once the 30 days have passed and the cancellation is complete, Jet will calculate the remaining time left on the bond into a refund. Please note that the first year of the bond is fully earned and is not eligible for a refund. Monthly payments will end after the 30-day liability period.

How Does a Public Weighmaster Avoid Bond Claims?

The obligations the Public Weighmaster Bond upholds are fairly straightforward: follow the provisions of your license and follow the Nevada Revised Statutes, Chapter 582, Sections 582.010–582.180. Essentially, following these standards will prevent you from doing illegal or fraudulent things, such as:

A violation of these statutes could not only result in a bond claim and civil penalties but a criminal penalty as well. The Department will issue a written warning if the public weighmaster unintentionally violates the statutes, but if intentional, the Department will fine the public weighmaster $25–$100 for the first violation, $50–$500 for the second, and $100–$1,000 for the third (Nevada Administrative Code 582.300). A criminal penalty in the form of jail time for six months to a year can also be assigned. 

If you receive a claim filing, contact Jet right away. Our team will review the evidence to verify whether the claim is valid. If it is, we must pay up to the full $1,000 limit to absolve the damages. However, as this is a license bond and not insurance, you are still responsible for paying Jet back.
