About Us

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 2554 European Norms (EN) via the European Committee for Standardization (CEN). With 2554 ENs – which is 16% of the available EN Standards in Europe – ASD-STAN is one of the major providers of European Norms. In addition 301 prENs will be transferred to CEN to become European Norms in the near future. ASD-STAN also developed 66 Technical Reports. Currently there are 332 standard developments by around 720 involved experts of the European aerospace industry.

In 2019 ASD-STAN published 42 new Projected European Norms (ASD-STAN prEN), in addition to transforming 170 prEN to European Norms (EN).
