The realignment of offices within the U.S. Department of Agriculture authorized by the Secretary’s Memorandum dated November 14, 2017, eliminates the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyard Administration (GIPSA) as a standalone agency. The grain inspection activities formerly part of GIPSA are now organized under the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS). DATES: October 1, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the May 22, 2017, and May 30, 2017, Federal Register (82 FR 23174) and (82 FR 24671–24673), GIPSA requested applications for designation to provide official services in the geographic areas presently serviced by Aberdeen, Hastings, and Missouri. Applications for Missouri were due by June 21, 2017. Applications for Aberdeen and Hastings were due by June 29, 2017. Because the current official agencies, Aberdeen, Hastings, and Missouri were the only applicants for designation to provide official services in these areas, GIPSA did not seek additional comments. GIPSA evaluated the designation criteria in section 7(f) of the USGSA (7 U.S.C. 79(f)) and determined that Aberdeen, Hastings, and Missouri are qualified to provide official services in the geographic areas specified in the Federal Register on May 22 and May 30, 2017. These designations to provide official services in the specified areas of Aberdeen, Hastings, and Missouri became effective October 1, 2017, and expire September 30, 2022.
