The fomulation of this Philippine National Standard for Fresh Fruits – Papaya – Grading and classification, PNS/BAFPS 33:2005 was initially undertaken in July 2001 under the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Product Standards (BAFPS)’ Technical Assistance on Safety and Quality Standards Covering Products of High Value Commercial Crops, in view of the increasing demand of the commodity for domestic and export markets.

The Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Product Standards (BAFPS) conducted series of technical reviews and public consultations nationwide on the draft standards for fresh papaya fruits prior to its approval.

The Technical Committee and Sub-Committee of BAFPS organized through Special Order No. 411, series of 2001 set the classification of fresh fruit papaya based on their physical characteristics and current practices existing in the sectors concerned.
