ASD-STAN is an association which establishes, develops and maintains standards on behalf of that European aerospace industry. ASD-STAN publishes and sells online its own standards-library documents and is a distributor for the independently produced SAE ITC E&A (former ADS standards) standards and ASD-STAN related DIN EN standards.

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 2266 European Norms (EN) via the European Standardization Organization CEN and 918 Pre-Standard European Norms and Technical Reports (prEN & TR).

In 2015 ASD-STAN published 80 new Pre-Standard European Norms (prEN), in addition to transforming 85 prEN to European Norms (EN).

With 2266 ENs – which is 11% of the available EN-Standards in Europe – ASD-STAN is one of the major providers of European Norms. In addition 727 prENs and 64 Technical Reports are already published by ASD-STAN which will be transferred to European Norms in the near future. Currently there are 675 standard developments by around 450 involved experts of the European aerospace industry.
