AEM members in the ag equipment sector are needed to work on a new safety standard for portable grain augers.

ISO/TC 23/SC 3/Working Group 20, Grain conveying equipment is looking for North American experts to assist in development of the ISO standard. 

This new standard, ISO 4254-16, Agricultural machinery – Safety – Part 16: Portable grain augers will be part of the ISO 4254 series and is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO 4254-1, the general safety standard for agricultural machinery. 

Working Group 20 will be looking at ASABE 361.3:1990, Safety for portable auger conveying equipment and CSA M688:2010, Portable agricultural auger conveying equipment as well as some other regional standards throughout its development cycle.

Experts interested in participating in this important work are asked to contact Scott Cedarquist at the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) (cedarq@asabe.org) or Dan Moss at AEM (dmoss@aem.org, tel: 708-217-8201).
