In support of the upcoming celebration of the World Standards Day, the DA-BAFS through its Standards Development Division will be conducting a series of webinars with the theme "Learn, Adapt, Execute: Standards Development Approach during a Pandemic".

This comic series is the popularized version of Philippine National Standard (PNS) on Fresh Fruit – Pineapple – Specification (PNS/BAFPS 09:2004) and PNS on Code of Good Agricultural Practices for Fruits and Vegetables (PNS/BAFS 49:2017). Each issue will discuss a salient provision of the standards.
