(3) Reinspection, appeal inspection, or Board appeal inspection services. A request for a reinspection, appeal inspection, or Board appeal inspection service shall be dismissed when:

(i) The kind and scope are different from the kind and scope of the last inspection service;

(ii) The condition of the grain has undergone a material change;

(iii) The request specifies a representative file sample and a representative file sample is not available,

(b) Procedure for dismissal. When an agency or the Service proposes to dismiss a request for official services, the applicant shall be notified of the proposed action. The applicant will then be afforded reasonable time to take corrective action or to demonstrate there is no basis for the dismissal. If the agency or the Service determines that corrective action has not been adequate, the applicant will be notified again of the decision to dismiss the request for service, and any results of official services shall not be released.
