IPC standards are created by the individuals who use them - members of the electronics manufacturing industry. This page details how you can get involved in creating and developing IPC Standards. 

Use this page to submit a project proposal of your own, explore other projects in development, and become involved.

We look forward to being inspired by your vision!

If you have any questions, please contact answers@ipc.org.

Pipeline Graphics - Propose a Standard - 1140x100


Any number of individuals - from a single engineer to an entire company of electronics professionals - can submit a standard development proposal to IPC. Alternatively, those individuals may choose to submit prior or ongoing projects to IPC so that they can be developed as a standard. 

Please note that IPC Standards are truly industry made - volunteers submitted through this form will be expected to help write and edit all components of their proposed project! 

Contact Information

IPC will solicit input from multiple companies in the process of building the PIN for a proposed standard. 

In order to ensure that your project reaches PIN as soon as possible, it is highly encouraged that you work with your peers and competitors to support your project. Please include those additional contacts below.
