THE OECD Standard Codes for Agricultural and Forestry Tractors

Michael M. Ryan – Trade & Agriculture Directorate


The OECD

  • Inter-governmental Organisation

    • Established in 1961

    • 30 Member countries

    • Works with over 70 developing and transition economies

      Multilateral Forum …

      • Address economic, social and environmental challenges

      • Economic analyses

      • Provides comparative data to underpin multilateral co-operation

      • Policy recommendations and good practices

Who drives OECD’s Work?


Trade & Agriculture Directorate

Policy Analysis

  • Monitoring changes in agricultural policies

  • Medium term commodity outlook

  • Agro-Food Chain analysis

  • International Standards Part II Programmes

  • Bio-energy policies

  • Multilateral analysis of trade agreements

    (agriculture, manufactures, services,export credits)


Codes and Schemes

  • Participation open to all countries

  • Voluntary programme – self financing

  • Currently 60 countries

    • Equal voting rights

    • First step to participating in other activities

    • Annual contribution

  • Four Schemes: – Seed Scheme

    – Tractor Codes

    – Forest Scheme

    – Fruit and Vegetable Scheme


OECD Standard Codes for the Official Testing of Agricultural and Forestry Tractors

  • Background

    • Established in 1959

    • 29 participating countries

      • 25 OECD Member Countries

      • China, India, Russia, Serbia

    • National Designated Authorities

    • 9 Codes [2-10]

      • Performance & Safety Codes

      • >2 000 tested for Performance

      • >10 000 tested for safety codes


What is it?

  • RULES and DIRECTIONS for tractor testing

    Official OECD approval for a tractor

  • First Code established on 21st April 1959

    • Performance ….

    • Safety … ROPS & FOPS

    • Noise….

  • In constant evolution:


  • Objectives

    “one tractor – one description – one test”

    • simplify existing international trade procedures,

    • establish specifications and basic performance criteria

    • ensure a minimum of quality for the traded material

    • Transparency, facilitate trade, increase the agricultural machinery market


    9 Codes ……Testing

    • Performance: Code 2

    • Noise at the driver's position(s): Code 5

    • Protective structures: Codes 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

      • Roll-Over Protective Structures (ROPS)

      • Falling Object Protective Structures (FOPS

      • Code 1… Repealed

      • NB:Quantifiable tests for reliablecomparison between countries


    OECD STANDARD CODES


    OECD Standard Codes


    OECD Standard Codes


    29 Participating countries

    • Non-OECD members:

      • China

      • India

      • Russian Federation

      • Serbia

    National Designated Authorities (NDAs)

    implement the Codes

    choose the Testing Stations to perform tractor tests according to the Codes


    How does it work?

    OECD Secretariat

    NDA

    New Tractor

    Report

    Approval Number

    Approvals since 1959:

    > 2 350 for performance

    > 10 400 for noise or safety


    3 Types of Activities


    OECD Standard Codes

    • OECD Coordination Centre …

      • Quality Control …

      • Checks/ screens the reports from Testing Stations in member countries

      • Approval numbers…..

  • Cooperation with other Organisations

    • ISO ---- close cooperation

      • Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

  • EU Directives ------- Equivalence

  • FAO ……


  • OECD Standard Codes

    • Performance Code

      • Code 2: Testing of tractor performance

        • Motor power, fuel consumption, traction, hydraulics, etc.

    • Protective Structures (ROPS) codes

      • Roll-over, noise, falling objects,….

    • Code 3:Dynamic testing of roll-over protective structure

    • Code 4:Static testing of roll-over protective structure

    • Code 5:Measurement of noise at the driving position


    OECD Standard Codes

    • Code 6:Testing of front-mounted protective structures on narrow track tractors

    • Code 7:Testing of rear-mounted protective structures on narrow-track tractors

    • Code 8:Testing of protective structures on track-laying tractors

    • Code 9:Testing of protective structures for telehandlers

    • Code 10: Testing of falling object protective structures on tractors (FOPS)


    Benefits

    Governments/Public

    Companies/Private

    Create a business environment to facilitate international trade

    • Test methods

    • Quality control

    • Reduced trade barriers

    Reducing regulatory costs

    Companies can be:

    • tractor manufacturers

    • tractor sellers

    • tractor users

    • End user – Farmers

      • Quality products

      • Comparable information


    OECD STANDARD CODES

    • To facilitate trade through the use of internationally recognised standards

    • To contribute to health & safety requirements

    • To contribute to improving environmental standards…

    • To improve collaboration between international standards setting bodies…

    • To share information and knowledge on best practices...


    New Challenges

    • Environment/climate change: pollution issues

      • Biofuels – blending/economical aspect

      • Reduced fuel consumption – engine efficiency

      • Emissions - exhaust gas

    • New types of tractors?

      • Changing crops and practices – ex: GPS

      • New sophistications – ex: foldable ROPS, tractor mass, round shape ROPS


    Enlargement

    To major countries of the agriculture and forestry tractors industry

    • Brazil

    • Argentina

    • Mexico

      … Any country whishing to participate
