The scope of the Cable Standards Committee includes the development of standards for automotive cable used in passenger cars and light duty trucks. The scope includes all voltage rating up to but not including ignition cable. Additionally, the committee strives to harmonize SAE and ISO standards by establishing uniform test methods, dimensions, & performance requirements.
