A Leader in Standards Development

Why%20standardsASABE is the leading national producer of standards for agricultural systems. ASABE is also accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to coordinate and develop the US position in fifteen distinct areas of international standards development. Each of these areas has an associated ASABE technical committee, made up of US experts from a diverse range of backgrounds, to establish the US position in these areas.

The Need for Standards

Standards provide interchangeability between similarly functioning products and systems, improving compatibility, safety and performance for users. They improve the availability of components that can be used interchangeably with equipment provided by different manufacturers. Standards improve personal safety in relation to operating equipment and the application of products and materials. They establish performance criteria for products, materials, or systems. Standards also provide a common basis for testing, analyzing, describing, or informing users and producers in regards to the performance and characteristics of products, methods, materials, or systems.

Get Involved in Standards

We invite you to explore ASABE's technical communities and committees to identify groups within your technical interest area. Then, contact the appropriate administrator, who will answer any questions you may have and connect you to the committee. The administrators are your key to learning about the process, ASABE Forums, ballots, and other opportunities for involvement.
