IPC Offers Support for Proposed Compliance Date for PIP(3:1)-Containing Articles

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), IPC, and Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) coordinated on an industry response to EPA’s proposed compliance date for PIP (3:1)-containing articles. In 2021, we had several opportunities to engage with industry members and EPA to ensure a reasonable plan for the future prohibition on the manufacture and distribution of PIP (3:1) and articles containing this chemical substance. The latest comments were submitted by the December 27 deadline and offered industry support for the proposed 2024 compliance date. Also, the comments reiterated several requests for clarifications and exemptions for uses of PIP (3:1).  We expect additional opportunities to engage with industry and EPA on this topic and we continue to welcome industry members to reach back to IPC with their insights on uses of PIP (3:1) in electronics.
