Industry Programs


Development of industry standards and compliance programs

Industry Solutions

  • Aerospace Standards and Part Qualification Program - The Aerospace Standards and Part Qualification Program was created in January 2015 to accommodate the acquisition, by the SAEITC, of the UK based Aerospace Standards and Qualification Program previously run under the ADS, UK's Trade Association for Aerospace, Defense and Security. Control of the ex-ADS program resides with industry members who continue to form the SAEITC Technical Standards Committee.

    The program will, as required for organizational purposes, accommodate other standards programs where the control and implementation needs to reside outside SAE International's Aerospace Standards Program.

    • SAEITC Technical Standards Committee (TSC) - SAEITC Standards are published as part of the series of SAEITC Aerospace Industry Standards, and where appropriate, additional manufacturing and inspection requirements are issued
  • The Off-Road Vehicle Identification Number (PIN/WMC) System — a standards consortium and a database for managing VIN numbers for off-road recreational machines.
  • Probitas Authentication - IAQG recognized AQMS Auditor Authentication Body (AAB) and Training Provider Approval Body (TPAB). Probitas Authentication provides the service of certifying or approving persons (i.e., auditors) against specific certification scheme requirements (i.e. AQMS auditors- AS9104/3). In addition, Probitas Authentication provides the service of conducting the review and approval of training course content and training provider administration against the specific sector requirements (i.e. training courses for AQMS auditors-AS9104/3).
  • ARINC Industry Activities (ARINC IA) — ARINC Industry Activities (ARINC IA) organizes and oversees the activities of the Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC), Avionics Maintenance Conference (AMC), and the Flight Simulator Engineering & Maintenance Conference (FSEMC). The AEEC, AMC and FSEMC creates value that is substantial and widely recognized for airlines, aircraft and flight simulator manufacturers, avionics suppliers, training providers, and other stakeholders by cooperatively establishing common technical standards and developing shared technical solutions for complex airline industry challenges that no one organization could develop independently.

    This effort consists of more than 1,000 aviation industry professionals representing more than 70 airlines and 225 industry suppliers from nearly 40 countries from around the world participating in many AEEC, AMC and FSEMC leadership approved subcommittee, working group task group, and WebEx meetings, and teleconferences year round.

    In addition to these every day activities ARINC IA organizes, oversees, and showcases the internationally recognized AEEC General Session and Avionics Maintenance Conference in the spring and the Flight Simulator Engineering and Maintenance Conference in the fall as well as two Electronic Flight Bag Users Forums and two Data Link Users Forums each year.
  • The I/O Buffer Information Specification (IBIS) Open Forum — The I/O Buffer Information Specification (IBIS) Open Forum is dedicated to setting electronic data automation protocols, specifications and standards (including the I/O Buffer Information Specification and Touchstone) to enable integrated circuit vendors, software tool vendors and system designers to exchange information about input/output buffers and related interconnects in a consistent format.

    This Committee regularly meets to review specification technical development, IBIS utilities development, IBIS and Touchstone parser/checker development, and for exchanging general information regarding good modeling practices.
  • Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Steering Group - A group of engine OEMs organized to serve as the "go-to" source for information related to SAE G-22 standards, related training, and value-add programs, products and services impacting the aerospace engine supply chain.
