Organisational context

EUROCAE is the leading European body for standards in international civil aviation. It was established in 1963 as a non-profit association under French Law. Members include European and international equipment and airframe manufacturers, regulators, civil aviation authorities, service providers and airports.
The main activity of the organisation is the development and publication of standards for aviation. These are developed by international Working Groups (WGs), which consist of experts nominated by EUROCAE's member organisations. To enhance global harmonisation, a number of EUROCAE Working Groups are working in close cooperation with our partner organisations such as RTCA or SAE, which have a similar role in aviation standardisation in the United States and beyond.
