This final rule suspends indefinitely the Farm Service Agency (FSA) regulation requiring end-use certificates and tracking of wheat produced in Canada that enters the United States. This action is being taken in response to the discontinuation of Canada's end-use certificate program. As a result of these changes, importers and end- users of Canadian produced wheat are no longer required to provide FSA end-use certificates or consumption and resale reports on wheat produced in Canada.
