The American National Standards Institute has approved three SCTE standards, dealing with dielectric leakage testing, drop cable and hard-line adapters.

ANSI/SCTE 13 2011, Dielectric Air Leakage Test Method For Trunk, Feeder and Distribution Coaxial Cable, defines a test to detect voids in the dielectric and the bond between the dielectric and the center conductor.

ANSI/SCTE 74 2011, Specification for Braided 75 Ohm Flexible RF Coaxial Drop Cable, defines the materials and electrical and mechanical properties of flexible braided 75 ohm coaxial drop cables.

ANSI/SCTE 116 2011, Specification for 5/8-24 Port, Female Adapters, is intended to serve as a recommended guideline for the physical dimensions of female 5/8-24 port that is used on hard-line adapters for interconnection in the 75 ohm RF broadband communications industry. It is not intended to specify the details of manufacturing.
