SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the August 24, 2016, Federal Register (81 FR 57884), GIPSA announced the designation of Fremont to provide official services under the USGSA, effective July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2021. Subsequently, Fremont asked GIPSA to amend their designation to include official weighing services. 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 7 U.S.C. 79. Under 7 U.S.C. 79(a), GIPSA evaluated information regarding the designation criteria in section 7 U.S.C. 79 and determined that Fremont is qualified to provide official weighing services in their currently assigned geographic area.

Fremont's designation is amended to include Class X or Class Y weighing within their assigned geographic area, effective November 9, 2016, to June 30, 2021. Interested persons may obtain official services by contacting Fremont at (402) 721-1270.
