This Philippine National Standard for Fresh Chrysanthemum (Dendrathema) cut flower standard type was initially undertaken by the Sub-Committee on Ornamentals of the Technical Committee on Standards organized by the Bureau of Plant Industry in 1997.
In 2001, the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Product Standards (BAFPS) conducted series of technical reviews and public consultations on the draft standards of fresh chrysanthemum cut flower standard type prior to its approval.
The Technical Committee and Sub-Committees of BAFPS organized through the Special Order No. 411, series of 2001 set the classification of fresh chrysanthemum cut flower standard type based on their physical characteristics and current practices existing in the sectors concerned.
