  National Agricultural Machinery Standardization Technology Committee (hereinafter referred to as: NAMSTC) is a professional agricultural machinery standardization organization with the leadership and management by China Machinery Industry Federation commissioned by the Standardization Administration of China (SAC). The first committee was established in 1993. Set up in January 2010 in Beijing with 37 members is now the fourth one. Dr. Li, Shujun, the President of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Mechanization Sciences (CAAMS), is the Chairman of the fourth NAMSTC. Its uniform number in SAC is SAC/TC201.  

  Members of the NAMSTC consist of experts and technicians in scientific research, production, quality inspection, universities and colleges.  

  NAMSTC is mainly responsible for the standardization works in the professional fields of agricultural machineries, including plowing machinery, planting machinery, plant protection machinery, field management machinery, irrigation and drainage machinery, harvesting machinery, field operating machinery, agriculture production processing machinery, livestock machinery, feed processing machinery, farming machinery, lawn and garden machinery, etc.  

  NAMSTC currently consists of 5 sub-Technical Committees and 3 working groups, namely: Plant Protection and Cleaning Machinery sub-Technical Committee, Agricultural Mechanization sub-Technical Committee, Animal Husbandry Machinery sub-Technical Committee, Irrigation and Drainage Equipment and Systems sub-Technical Committee, and Farming and Fertilizer Machinery sub-Technical Committee. The General Secretariat is located in CAAMS, Secretariat of Plant Protection and Cleaning Machinery sub-Technical Committee is located in the Farming and Planting Machinery Research Institute of CAAMS, Secretariat of Agricultural Mechanization sub-Technical Committee is located in China Agricultural Machinery Testing Center of Ministry of Agriculture, Secretariat of Animal Husbandry Machinery sub-Technical Committee is located in Hohhot Branch of CAAMS, Secretariat of Irrigation and Drainage Equipment and Systems sub-Technical Committee is located in CAAMS, and Secretariat of Farming and Fertilizer Machinery sub-Technical Committee is located in the Modern Agricultural Equipment Co.,Ltd.; Sugar Cane Machinery Working Group is located in the Guangxi Academy of Agricultural Machinery, Agricultural Products Drying Working Group is based in the Drying Machine and Equipment Quality Supervision & Inspection Center of the Ministry of Agriculture, and Submersible Pump working group is located in Zhejiang Shimge Pump Industry Co., Ltd.
