On September 23 the Joint NAEGA-NGFA Grades and Inspections/Grains, Grades and Weights Committee submitted a joint statement to the Grain Inspectors, Packers and Stockyards Association regarding the delegated state status of the State of Wisconsin. States delegated by (GIPSA) to preform weighing and inspection services are required to meet certain criteria including maintaining adequate facilities and qualified personnel; rotating personnel; implementing training requirements and diligently using of user fees. In addition, these requirements are to be reviewed through a notice-and-comment review every five years. The joint statement confirms NAEGA and NGFA’s belief that the State of Wisconsin is meeting its obligation to remain a delegated state under GIPSA rules.
