IPC Status of Standardization

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 on our committee home pages and about the documents currently in development in our status of standardization. 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 Harry Han.

If you’re ready to help out, please send an e-mail to Answers@ipc.org. 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.

This report shows the status of IPC documents under development. To ensure due process, all IPC specifications are circulated among IPC member companies for their review. If you would like to obtain a copy of a particular draft, please contact the IPC technical staff at answers@ipc.org.

Once published, the documents are available from our Online Store.

IPC members may request one copy of any new standard within 90 days of publication. Request can be made at http://www.ipc.org/free-member-docs.
