Contribute to the IPC Standards that 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 takes place in meetings, by teleconference, or by e-mail. Distance shouldn’t deter you from joining a committee, IPC welcomes global input.

Committee members sharpen their presentation skills and negotiation skills during the committee process. 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. 

We make it easy for you to join a committee by completing the form on this page. Please make sure to reference the committee (see that information below) or tell us the technology that interests you. 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.

IPC provides a user friendly, secure platform to conduct committee business (IPC Works). As a task group/committee member you will be required to log on in order to use IPC Works. To access IPC Works

Standard Improvement 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, to design, to manufacture of boards and to 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 individuals from the global electronics industry to submit their ideas and comments for standards improvement and the potential of new standards.
