What is an appropriate calibration weight for a 4 ton weigh scale

Hi,


Hope you are doing well. I am an industrial engineer form Pakistan. I work as a production engineer. My question is:

1) What amount of calibration weight is necessary to calibrate a weigh scale with a maximum capacity of 4 ton?

2) Are there any relevant industry standards for this?

I am being told that i would need at least 1 ton of calibrated weights but that would be too expensive and impractical to carry out 

I would be extremely thankful for a response
