Standards in the industry provide many benefits including economies of scale, expanded trade possibilities, and increased resource flow. From new project proposal to publication, AIAA, as accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), adheres to procedures that facilitate adoption of its standards by agencies and industry as well as serve as the basis for international standards. AIAA manages a wide range of national aerospace standards publications and activities, and supports the continued enhancement of aerospace industry-wide efficiency and productivity.
