IPC Status of Standardization

Contribute to IPC Standards by Submitting Your Comments 

Individuals or companies are invited to submit a comment to IPC on standards improvement via the Standards Improvement form, found on the right. The purpose of this form is to provide the appropriate technical committee of IPC with input from the industry regarding recommendations for published standards or work in progress on new or revisions of standards being worked on. Complete the form on the right and just click on the submit button, a tech staff person will be in touch if there are any questions.

Your technical expertise and comments are critical to the development of IPC standards that cover areas of supply, design, manufacture of boards and finished assemblies. We are continually looking for ways to improve current standards but we are also looking for what might be that next standard the industry. Every idea or comment goes through a rigorous process to meet the criteria for potential standards development for the industry. Once accepted a project is established and the great work of the industry committees starts. 

IPC encourages and welcomes individuals from the global electronics industry to submit their ideas or to request to be added to a ballot group as part of the standards development process. 

If you are located in Asia Pacific Market - 

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 will contact you and review your comments to understand your interest and follow through with next steps. 

IPC Standardization Procedures - provides processes, structure and ANSI policy in developing standards for the electronics industry
