Aerospace Standards Development

We Set the World's Aerospace Standards

Rigorous and recognized global standards are essential for the certification, airworthiness, and interoperability of aerospace products in a truly worldwide sector. Few other industries demand products with the degree of quality required by aviation, defense, and space.

SAE International is the custodian of a portfolio of over 7,800 active standards, specifications, recommended practices, and information reports covering design, manufacturing, certification, operation, and maintenance.
