Need for Correction Back to Top
The Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration published two documents in the Federal Register on January 20, 2011 (76 FR 3485) and on April 4, 2011 (76 FR 18348), concerning required scale tests. Those documents incorrectly defined limited seasonal basis in § 201.72(a) (9 CFR 201.72(a)). This document corrects § 201.72 by revising the last sentence of paragraph (a).
Accordingly, 9 CFR part 201 is corrected by making the following correcting amendment:
PART 201—REGULATIONS UNDER THE PACKERS AND STOCKYARDS ACT Back to Top
1.The authority citation for part 201 continues to read as follows:
2.In § 201.72, revise the last sentence of paragraph (a) to read as follows:

(a) * * *Except that if scales are used on a limited seasonal basis (during any continuous 8-month period) for purposes of purchase, sale, acquisition, payment or settlement, the stockyard owner, swine contractor, market agency, dealer, live poultry dealer, or packer using such scales may use the scales within a 8-month period following each test.
