If a equipment buyer does not have the expertise to select a suitable machine for his use, the usual process is to appoint a consultant who then collects the buyer's requirements and mathes them with the capabilities of the equipment available in the market for sale.
After purchase, the consultant also trains the buyer in the proper use/ operation of this equipment.
In the purchase of complex equipment, standards are not of much help. more  
Composting can be done manually without use of any machine. Agriculture University will have a practice for manual composting.
Equipment is used to clean, turn, sieve, sort and fill bags. There are no standards for automated composting equipment. Normally such equipment manufacturers association formulates a draft standard and submits it to BIS. A committee will search for similar standards in developed countries. Then a harmonised standard is proposed by the committee. This proposed standard is put through a predefined process after which a n equipment standard is issued to the public.
Then a manufacturer has to submit an application claiming that his equipment complies with the standard. This claim is verified by BIS and a certificate is issued in the name of the manufacturer. more  
Yes,no standrads.No specifications for equipments more
