SAE Reading Room

Access standards incorporated by reference in U.S. federal regulations

What is the SAE Reading Room?

SAE’s Reading Room provides public access to foreign-government authored content and the sections of SAE standards that have been incorporated by reference into the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Incorporated by reference selections have been cropped to include only the required content.  Both products types are offered at no cost, and are presented in an online, read-only format that may not be downloaded or distributed. Complete versions of all Reading Room selections and the most recent version of all SAE standards are available for purchase in PDF and print formats.

Please note: Standards documents available through the Reading Room are limited to versions referenced in the CFR or respective law and may not be the most currently available version. SAE does not control the selection of the standards’ sections or versions incorporated by reference.
