(a) General. Any interested person may request a retest inspection service on nongraded commodities. When more than one interested person requests a retest inspection service, the first interested person to file is the applicant of record. Only one retest inspection service may be performed on any original inspection service.

(b) Scope of request. A retest inspection service may be requested for any or all quality factors tested but shall be limited to analysis of the file sample.

(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 0580-0012)

§868.51   How to request retest inspection service.

(a) General. Requests shall be made with the field office responsible for the area in which the original inspection service was performed. Verbal requests shall be confirmed in writing, upon request, as specified in §868.21. Copies of request forms may be obtained from the field office upon request. If at the time the request is filed and the documentation required by §868.21 is not available, official personnel may, at their discretion, withhold service pending the receipt of the required documentation.

(b) Request requirements. Requests will be considered filed on the date they are received by official personnel.
