In the February 26, 2013 Federal Register (78 FR 13015), GIPSA announced the designation of Detroit to provide official services under the USGSA, effective April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2016. Subsequently, Detroit asked GIPSA to amend their designation to include official weighing services. Section 79a of the USGSA authorizes the Secretary to designate authority to perform official weighing to an agency providing official inspection services within a specified geographic area, if such agency is qualified under section 79 of the USGSA. GIPSA evaluated information regarding the designation criteria in section 79 of the USGSA and determined that Detroit is qualified to provide official weighing services in their currently assigned geographic area.
Detroit's designation is amended to include Class X or Class Y weighing within their assigned geographic area, effective October 18, 2013 to March 31, 2016.
Interested persons may obtain official services by contacting Detroit at (810) 404-3786.
