IPC Position Statement on Specification Revision Change
It is the position of IPC’s Technical Activities Executive Committee (TAEC) that the use and implementation of IPC publications is voluntary and is part of a relationship entered into by customer and supplier. When an IPC standard/guideline is updated and a new revision is published, it is the opinion of the TAEC that the use of the new revision as part of an existing relationship is not automatic unless required by the contract. The TAEC recommends the use of the latest revision.
