Contribute to the IPC Standards Your Company, Competitors, Customers and Suppliers Depend On

Wondering how the standards you rely on get developed? Do you want to help make those standards better? Have you always wanted to find out why a certain criterion was included?

Use your technical expertise to improve IPC standards. Committee participation can take place in meetings, by teleconference, or by e-mail. Distance shouldn’t deter you and, indeed, IPC welcomes global input.

Committee members sharpen their negotiation and presentation skills. You’ll personally benefit from developing a network of experts with similar interests. In addition, committee participation can help build your resume and show potential employers that you’re keeping up with technological changes in the industry.

Find out more about IPC committees from the links below and about the documents currently in development by visiting our Status of Standardization page.

IPC members in China and Asia are invited to participate through TGAsia Forum, our e-mail forum for discussion of standards development. Find out more about TGAsia Forum by contacting:

Director, IPC Greater China Certification, Training and Standards

If you’re ready to help out, please send an e-mail to Please reference the committee or technology that interests you and provide your complete contact information, including your address, phone, and fax number. We’ll get in touch on the best way to get involved. Committee communications are conducted through e-mail, so it is mandatory to furnish a working e-mail address.

IPC committees are beginning the transition to using the Kavi website for committee collaboration. To help our committee members with this transition, a Basic User Training video has been made available.
