The formulation of this national standard was initiated by the Agricultural Machinery Testing and Evaluation Center (AMTEC) under the project entitled "Enhancing the Implementation of AFMA Through Improved Agricultural Engineering Standards" which was funded by the Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) of the Department of Agriculture (DA).

This standard has been technically prepared in accordance with PNS 01-4:1998 (ISO/IEC Directives Part 3:1997) - Rules for the Structure and Drafting of International Standards.

The word "shall" is used to indicate requirements strictly to be followed in order to conform to the standard and from which no deviation is permitted.

The word "should" is used to indicate that among several possibilities one is recommended as particularly suitable, without mentioning or excluding others, or that certain course of action is preferred but not necessarily required.

In the preparation of this standard, the following documents/publications were considered:

AMTEC Test Reports on Walking-type Agricultural Tractors (Float-assist tiller)

Manaligod, H.T. and R.E. Stickney. Puddling-type Floating Power Tiller for Small-scale Rice Farms. Agricultural Mechanization in Asia, Africa and Latin America (AMA) vol.22 No.4. 1991

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 3789-2:1982 - Tractors, machinery for agriculture and forestry, powered lawn and garden equipment - Location and method of operation of operator's controls- Part 2: Controls for Agricultural tractors and machinery.

Republic Act No. 7394 otherwise known as "The Consumer Act of the Philippines" enacted on July 22, 1991.
