Section 27 of the AFMech Law states that, as the premier testing center, AMTEC shall assist the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Standards (BAFS) in the formulation of quality, safety and performance standards of agricultural and fisheries machinery and of accreditation guideline for testing centers.

These standards, upon adoption, are to be used in the preparation and monitoring of specifications and evaluation of the performance of agricultural machineries and serve as the technical reference of all agricultural engineers in the signing and sealing of plans, design and specifications, and other related works in the practice of the agricultural engineering profession.

As of December 2018, AMTEC has already assisted in the production of 12 volumes of PAES comprised of standards for general procedures, rules for structure and metrication, production machineries, postharvest machineries, engineering materials, agricultural structures, and slaughterhouse equipment.”
