The Philippine National Standard (PNS) for Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) was established and was adopted in 2004. Since its adoption, major industry players move for its immediate revision. In relation to this, studies were commissioned in order to support the provisions of the standards.
PNS/BAFPS 22:2004 is hereby revised in order to reflect the results of the studies conducted on VCO. The revised standard provides a common language for the essential composition and quality factors, specifically the identity and quality characteristics.
This standard cancels and replaces PNS/BAFPS 22:2004 and its Amendment 1:2005.
