Why in your opinion doesn't "issuing body" apply in this case? RDA defines it as, "A person, family or corporate body issuing a work, such as an official organ of the body." The "official organ of the body" is an example but my understanding is that corporate body that shows up in the 264 $b could be considered an issuing body regardless of whether it qualifies as a creator under RDA 18.104.22.168. (In MARC-speak: a CB does not need to be the 110 to get the "issuing body" relator.)
Also, looking at NAF I see that as of very recently, "SAE International (Society)" has become the current authorized access point (no2014055424), and "Society of Automotive Engineers" (n 80126013) is now the previous form of the body's name.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Relation ship designator: corporate body
I need some advice please. I made an access point for a corporate body (MARC 710 field) that was the publisher as well as part of the series statement. I went through Appendix I, but could not find a suitable relationship designator. The only designator I could find was "issuing body" and that is not applicable in this case. We often make access points like these, especially if it is not a commercial publisher, but a Dept of a university, a society or other such body.
There is a title access point with an editor:
