Supervisory Reviews of Agricultural Commodity Graders

This instruction provides guidance on conducting formal supervisory reviews on non-probationary Agricultural Commodity Graders (ACGs) regarding their grading, inspection certification, documentation, and other inspection related elements. ACGs in probationary status fall under a more comprehensive review schedule not covered by this instruction. In addition to this instruction, it is expected that supervisors perform regular informal performance spot checks on inspection personnel throughout the year or season as inspection services are being performed.
