First paragraph: Standards have played an important role since the 1920s in the design, testing, marketing, and use of agricultural machinery. For purposes of this section, standards are defined as specifications or engineering practices developed through a consensus process to address a common problem or specific need identified by machinery manufacturers or farmers. Further, conformance is voluntary rather than mandated by a regulatory or enforcement agency of government.
