IPC Europe / IPC Russia

In 2003, IPC opened a European representative office in order to provide better, more timely service to the industry in Europe. The goal was also to establish a more active ear, to listen to our members and adjust programming to better meet their needs. The IPC European Representative is responsible for working closely with IPC distributors who sell IPC standards throughout Europe.

In 2009, IPC hired a representative in Russia to enhance the efforts already underway in Europe and address companies doing business in the Russian Language.

IPC Europe and IPC Russia have been working to raise the visibility of IPC and its programs in order to help electronics manufacturers increase employees' technical knowledge, improve quality and enhance profitability and success. One important goal is also to invite companies to participate locally in IPC standards, certification, management councils and other IPC industry programs.

Employees who participate in standards development activities will gain knowledge about industry standards, enhance their leadership skills and will become more valuable to their companies.
