Delegation, Designation, and Exporter Registration

The Federal Grain Inspection Service (FGIS) modernized its grain inspection and weighing business information systems to better meet the needs of our customers. FGISonline is a portfolio of online business applications that changed the way FGIS does business, and brings official inspection and weighing to the desktop. These online business services have improved internal business operations, and better serves the customers of the official grain inspection and weighing service.

The Delegation and Designation program allows you to apply online to become designated as an official service provider who is authorized by FGIS to provide official inspection and weighing services to the domestic grain market on our behalf. State or private entities may be designated to inspect and weigh grain at interior locations.

Designation applications are accepted only during the application period specified in a Federal Register notice soliciting applicants.

The Exporter Registration program allows exporters to register with FGIS online. All who buy grain for sale in international commerce, and those who handle, weigh, or transport grain for sale in foreign commerce must register as an exporter with FGIS.
