USDA Revokes USGSA Designation in Decatur, Ind.

September 13, 2023

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has revoked the Northeast Indiana Grain Inspection Inc.’s (NEI) designation as an agency that may perform official grain inspection and weighing services due to its failure to comply with requirements of the United States Grain Standards Act (USGSA). Under USGSA, when a designated official agency fails to comply with provisions of the Act, regulations, or instructions, the Secretary may seek suspension, revocation, or both of their designation. NEI’s revocation became final and effective on August 21, 2023.

The USDA Federal Grain Inspection Service (FGIS) Domestic Inspections Operations Office (DIOO) is handling any questions or concerns as well as servicing the area through agreements with other designated Official Agencies. FGIS will re-advertise the Decatur, Indiana, USGSA geographic area through an opportunity notice in the Federal Register. FGIS will issue a notice to inform the public when the Decatur, Indiana area is open for designation applications.

For official grain inspection and weighing services in the Decatur, Indiana area, please contact the FGIS DIOO in Kansas City, Missouri by phone or email at (816) 659-8400 or
