The formulation of this PNS/BAFPS 17:2005 , Philippine National Standard for Vegetables – Cabbage (Brassica oleracea var, capitata L.) – Grading and classification, was initially drafted by the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Product Standards (BAFPS) with reference to Philippine Trade Standard Specification for Fresh Cabbage (1968); Food Terminal Inc. Quality and Grade Specifications for Cabbage (1981); US Standards for Grades of Cabbage (1987) and CBT Product Grades, Packaging, Storage and Seasonality (1994).

This standard was reviewed by the BAFPS’ Technical Committee prior to its presentation in a public consultation in the three major islands of the country. Comments from the stakeholders were carefully evaluated and were inputted accordingly in the f inal draft.

The Technical Committee created by BAFPS for this purpose was composed of experts from DA-AMAS, DA-NAFC, PHTRC-UPLB, IPB-UPLB and the Vegetables Growers Association
