ASABE Has Begun Withdrawing ISO 15077 Standard

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) is proposing the withdrawal of the 2008 identical adoption ASABE/ISO 15077:2008 OCT2008 (R2018), Tractors and Self-Propelled Machinery for Agriculture — Operator Controls — Actuating Forces, Displacement, Location and Method of Operation, from publication.

Within ISO TC23/SC3, Tractor safety and comfort, the US led a revision to ISO 15077 to update operator controls methodology. The latest revision, ISO 15077:2020, reflects the changes requested by the US. The current ISO 15077 document is being proposed as an addition to the ASABE Recognized Document list in parallel with the withdrawal of the older adopted version. A Recognized Document is a document that a committee of designated ASABE experts has reviewed and deemed relevant to industry interests. Additional details can be found on the ASABE website.

ASABE is recognized worldwide as a standards-developing organization for food, agricultural, and biological systems, with more than 280 standards currently in publication.
