Title: Exceptions to Geographic Boundaries (AMS-FGIS-19-0062) 

This action solicits comments on a proposal to add a "nonuse of service” exception to the requirement that will allow Federal Grain Inspection Service (FGIS) customers to obtain official services from agencies designated to provide those services within specific geographic areas. This action further proposes to gather information on stakeholder needs prior to the implementation of the nonuse of service exceptions. Public comments and suggestions, including industry input, would be used to develop a proposed rule for further public comment criteria FGIS would consider in determining whether to grant exceptions to the geographic boundary requirement.
