ST JOSEPH, MICHIGAN— The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has initiated two projects to nationally adopt two recently revised international standards:

• ISO 500-1:2014, Agricultural tractors -- Rear-mounted power take-off types 1, 2, 3 and 4 -- Part 1: General specifications, safety requirements, dimensions for master shield and clearance zone

• ISO 500-3:2014, Agricultural tractors -- Rear-mounted power take-off types 1, 2, 3 and 4 -- Part 3: Main PTO dimensions and spline dimensions, location of PTO.

The standards were revised by ISO to include type 4 power take-offs.

Once adopted by ASABE, the two standards will replace two corresponding documents from 2004, which ASABE adopted in 2011: ANSI/ASABE AD500-1:2004 and ASABE/ISO 500-3:2004.

These actions advance harmonization between national and international standards, a goal that facilitates manufacturing, safety advancements and product marketing worldwide.  To date over 40 ISO standards have been nationally adopted by ASABE.

ASABE is recognized worldwide as a standards developing organization for food, agricultural, and biological systems, with more than 250 standards currently in publication. Conformance to ASABE standards is voluntary, except where required by state, provincial, or other governmental requirements, and the documents are developed by consensus in accordance with procedures approved by the American National Standards Institute. For information on this or any other ASABE standard, contact Scott Cedarquist at 269-932-7031, cedarq@asabe.org. A current listing of all ASABE standards projects can be found on the ASABE web site at www.asabe.org/projects.
