In 2000 the SAE Foundation and InterRegs Ltd joined forces to create a new engineering and homologation award. The SAE/InterRegs Standards and Regulations Award was established by InterRegs as a way to reward participation in standards and regulations by engineers, and to encourage increased participation in this field in the future.

It has attracted high-calibre nominations from well-known organisations in the automotive industry, with award winners from Honda R&D, Ford Motor Company, Visteon, Delphi, Arvin Meritor, GE Lighting, Caterpillar and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The Award is presented to the winner, during the annual SAE Government/Industry Meeting in Washington DC, USA. The winning engineer will be presented with an engraved memento and a US$1000 cash prize.

The SAE/InterRegs Standards and Regulations Award will be awarded to a practising engineer involved in standards, regulations or conformity assessment systems which improved safety or reduced emissions in an automotive product. Candidates can self-nominate or be nominated by another individual.

The deadline for nominations for the next SAE/InterRegs Standards and Regulations Award is 1st October 2020.
