IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA)



Standards Prefix


The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) is a leading consensus building organisation that nurtures, develops and advances global technologies, through IEEE. We bring together a broad range of individuals and organisations from a wide range of technical and geographic points of origin to facilitate standards development and standards related collaboration. With collaborative thought leaders in more than 160 countries, we promote innovation, enable the creation and expansion of international markets and help protect health and public safety. Collectively, our work drives the functionality, capabilities and interoperability of a wide range of products and services that transform the way people live, work and communicate.

The IEEE Standard Activities began first with the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) and later with the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). In 1963 these two organisations merged to form the IEEE.
