On June 29, 2018, AMS published its request for comments from the public in the Federal Register (83 FR 30592) regarding the United States (U.S.) Standards for Soybeans under the United States Grain Standards Act (USGSA) (7 U.S.C. 71-87k).

The realignment of offices within the U.S. Department of Agriculture authorized by the Secretary's Memorandum dated November 14, 2017, eliminates the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) as a standalone agency. The grain inspection activities formerly part of GIPSA are now organized under AMS.
