SAE Technical Reports play a key role in market access, safety, reducing costs, increasing productivity, improving market position and advancing new technologies. Participation in the standards development process provides the opportunity to voice your ideas, express concerns and present technologies.
SAE Technical Reports are developed by the organization's more than 700 Technical Committees. Participation is open to all interested parties.
Identifying a Need: New technical reports begin when a need is identified by producers, purchasers or anyone in industry. A proposal to create a new technical report requires concurrence from the respective committee. All projects must be in compliance with SAE Intellectual Property Policy.
Types of Technical Reports:
Technical Committees: The Technical Committees are responsible for the preparation, development and maintenance of all relevant technical reports within their scope. Technical Committees consist of technical experts from government, industry, regulatory agencies and academia.
Membership: Members are to contribute to the work of the Technical Committee, vote on all technical report ballots and maintain active participation on the respective Technical Committee. Technical Committee members must be knowledgeable in the field(s) outlined by the Committee's scope.
Technical Report Sponsor: The sponsor will serve as the focal point within the committee for activities associated with the development of a technical report. This includes preparation of all drafts and resolution of all comments received during the ballot process.
