ASD-STAN is an association which establishes, develops and maintains standards on behalf of European aerospace industry. ASD-STAN publishes and sells online its own standards-library documents and is a distributor for the independently produced UK ADS standards-library.
It is well recognised as the European body for the development of global aerospace standards by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG).
Over the years, ASD-STAN has established a lean and streamlined standardisation process for European aerospace standards in agreement with the European Committee for Standardization (CEN). However, reducing the lead-time for the standards development process in accordance with industry needs remains a constant goal of ASD-STAN.
ASD-STAN has published in total 2445 European Norms (EN) via the European Standardization Organization CEN and 917 Pre-Standard European Norms and Technical Reports (prEN & TR). With 2445 ENs – which is 12% of the available EN-Standards in Europe – ASD-STAN is one of the major providers of European Norms. In addition 851 prENs and 66 Technical Reports are already published by ASD-STAN which will be transferred to European Norms in the near future. Currently there are 332 standard developments by around 720 involved experts of the European aerospace industry.
In 2018 ASD-STAN published 107 new Projected European Norms (ASD-STAN prEN), in addition to transforming 123 prEN to European Norms (EN).
