Press Release | EUROCAE and SAE International Sign Updated Memorandum of Cooperation
During the EUROCAE Symposium, on 28 April in Warsaw, representatives from global standards organisations EUROCAE and SAE International have signed an updated Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC).

The agreement will foster information exchange and cooperation in the aviation and aerospace sectors aiming to harness the expertise of stakeholders and to promote harmonization and interoperability in advancing technical solutions in global aviation. 

The MoC was signed by EUROCAE Director General Anna von Groote and SAE International Senior Director of Standards David Alexander. 
Anna von Groote expressed her appreciation of the collaboration and added that “consensus standards play an extremely important role in aviation. We are excited to strengthen our partnership with SAE International and look forward to the work we will perform together in support of the global aviation community.”

“The cooperation of global aviation stakeholders is an increasingly vital part of ensuring safety while facilitating innovation. As we support the community in advancing aviation technology and ensuring a sustainable future of flight, we value our productive and important partnership with EUROCAE and look forward to growing our cooperation,” noted David Alexander.

EUROCAE and SAE International look back at a long-standing partnership for the joint development of standards in support of global interoperability and aviation solutions. This updated MoC builds on the fruitful collaboration between SAE International and EUROCAE, and provides further clarification of the framework for joint standards development to the working groups and technical committees as well as to the organisations. 

Today, about 10% of EUROCAE’s published standards and ongoing standards-development activities are carried out jointly with SAE International, such as:


Electromagnetic hazards


Lightning Committee


Complex Aircraft Systems


Aircraft and Systems Development and Safety Assessment Committee


Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Systems


Hydrogen and Fuel Cells


Inflight Ice Detection Systems


Aircraft Icing Technology Committee

WG-112 SG-8

VTOL Seats


Aircraft Seat committee


Artificial Intelligence


Artificial Intelligence in Aviation


High Voltage


Aging Models for Electrical Insulation in High Energy Systems

Other areas of collaboration are under consideration.



EUROCAE develops high-quality aviation standards, which are built upon the expertise of more than 4500 highly skilled experts nominated by EUROCAE´s 400 European and global members. EUROCAE standards are referenced by all major European and international regulators. They build upon state-of-the art expertise of its members, are fit for purpose and adopted internationally, support operations, development and regulations, and address emerging global aviation challenges.
