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.

In 2016, opened a new office in Brussels, Belgium. The office delivers the full suite of IPC products and services, including member support, standards development activities, educational opportunities, and more to all members in Europe.
