Standards Committees

Member organizations develop standards through their technical representatives who serve on subcommittees, which are focused on specific areas of cable technology. The technical subcommittees are the consensus bodies for development and the Engineering Committee of the SCTE Board of Directors supervises the overall standards program. Learn more about each of the working groups and the standards that they develop to find those relevant to your company’s products and services. Get involved to make sure your organization is keeping up with the latest cable technologies. Join the SCTE Standards Program.

Engineering Committee


The Engineering Committee is responsible for all standards and recommended practices activities of the Society. Any Committees, subcommittees, and working groups or task forces necessary for standards and practices development will report to the Engineering Committee.
