Materials Declaration Data Exchange Standards Homepage

The IPC-175x family of standards establishes a standard reporting format for data exchange between supply chain participants. This series of standards is XML-schema based, which allows for more efficient and effective communication of data. Each standard in the series is explained below. 

Generic Requirements for Declaration Process Management 

Current Version: 1751A With Amendment 1 (November 2012)

IPC-1751A provides the basic supplier/requestor details for declarations necessary between members of a supply chain relationship. This standard contains general information and is supplemented by sectional standards requiring more detailed information. This standard is mandatory as part of all other data exchange sectional standard declarations.

The latest version of the IPC 1751 standard can be downloaded by visiting http://shop.ipc.org/1751ADF-English-D.

The standard is supported by an XML schema and a data model, available from the link below.

Materials Declaration Management Standard (Revision A)

Current Version: 1752A With Amendments 1, 2, and 3 (March 2018)

IPC-1752 enables companies in the supply chain to share information on materials in products. There are two supported versions: IPC-1752A and IPC-1752B.

IPC-1752A With Amendments 1,2, and 3 Materials Declaration Management Standard

IPC 1752A establishes a standard reporting format for material declaration data exchange between supply chain participants and supports reporting of bulk materials, components, printed boards, sub-assemblies, and products.

Amendment 3 provides important enhancements to the IPC-1752A standard, including

  • Identity codes to facilitate identification of declarable substances and declarable substance groups in a Class C compliance declaration XML. Prior to Amendment 3, software tools carried out the identification by looking at the text name of the declarable substance or declarable substance group. However, the text name for a declarable substance group can be up to 300 characters long and any discrepancies can cause a software tool to fail to upload the RCD XML. Amendment 3 provides a 5-digit identification code which enables software tools to more easily identify each declarable substance and declarable substance group in the RCD XML file.
  • Defined list of statements, identity codes and revision numbers to support Class A declarations. Each Class A query list now includes a defined list of statements and identity codes. For example, the Class A declaration “Product(s) meets EU REACH substance restrictions” has identify code “01” in query list EUREACH-ARTICLE67-1272/2013.
  • All references to JIG-101 have been replaced with references to IEC 62474. The last version of the JIG-101 list (version 4.1) was published in May 2012. The JIG-101 list is no longer maintained and instead the IEC 62474 has introduced a replacement list of regulated substances and regulated substance groups.

Please note that this version is not supported by a PDF form. The data exchange format is specified as Extensible Markup Language (XML) and IPC-1752A relies on third party solution providers to provide software tools compatible with the standard.

IPC-1752A Appendices 

The lists of substances, i.e. RoHS substance restrictions, REACH SVHC list, RoHS Exemptions, etc., are in informative appendices in order to improve the ease of updating the dynamic lists. These lists are in XML and PDF format and lists are updated twice a year following publication of an updated REACH SVHC Candidate List by ECHA.

Materials Declaration Management Standard (Revision B)

Current Version: 1752B (July 2020)

IPC-1752 enables companies in the supply chain to share information on materials in products. There are two supported versions: IPC-1752A and IPC-1752B.

IPC-1752B Materials Declaration Management Standard

From 5 January 2021, all companies in Europe must submit information to ECHA’s substances of concern in products (SCIP) database for products they supply which include articles containing REACH candidate list substances above 0.1%. The requirement stems from the revised Waste Framework Directive.  To help companies collect the necessary SCIP information from their supply chains, on 1 July 2020 IPC published the new IPC-1752B supply chain data exchange standard. 

The IPC-1752B materials declaration standard is applicable to products across all industry sectors and helps companies who want to collect data from their supply chains in a format matching the data requirements of the SCIP database.  The structure of the IPC-1752B standard mirrors the ECHA SCIP database submission format. The standard includes new functionality which enables reporting different products with different types of materials declarations, known as declaration classes, in the same XML file. This enables suppliers to report sub-products using different declaration classes which provide different levels of detail about the materials in the articles.

IPC maintains several informative Implementation Lists for use with the IPC-1752B standard, including the lists of RoHS substance restrictions, REACH Candidate List Substances of Very High Concern, REACH Substance Restrictions, RoHS Exemptions, etc.  These Informative Information lists are in XML and PDF format and the lists are updated twice a year following publication of an updated REACH SVHC Candidate List by ECHA. These implementation lists are available below.

Laboratory Declaration Standard

Latest revision: May 2018

The IPC-1753 WAM 1 Laboratory Declaration Standard facilitates the exchange of laboratory chemical analysis reports between supply chain members. This standard includes a standardized laboratory report format and method to exchange the information. The need for this standard comes from requests for companies to provide laboratory analytic data to show compliance with the RoHS Directive and other regulatory and customer requirements.

This standard is available in the IPC Online Store at http://shop.ipc.org/IPC-1753-W-Amendment-1-English-D.

The data exchange format is specified as Extensible Markup Language (XML) and IPC-1753 relies on third party solution providers to provide software tools compatible with the standard. To view solution providers who are verified to report using the IPC-1753Am1, please visit the Verified Solution Provider Page.

Materials Declaration Standard for Aerospace and Defense and Other Industries

Latest revision: July 2020

IPC-1754 establishes the requirements for exchanging material and substance data for products between suppliers and their customers for Aerospace and Defense and other industries with deep supply chains and complex bills of materials.

This standard covers exchanging data on chemical substances (“Substances”) that may be present in materials and processes used in production, operations, maintenance, repair or overhaul/refurbishment of the supplied product or sub-product. This standard applies to business-to-business transactions. It is not intended to be used by the general public when making purchasing decisions.

The IPC-1754 standard supports a broad range of hazardous substance regulations (like EU REACH, China RoHS or USA TSCA) and obsolescence risk management by establishing rules for software providers, allowing them to track substances present in products and processes against a Declarable Substance List (DSL).

The data exchange format is specified as Extensible Markup Language (XML) and IPC-1754 relies on third party solution providers to provide software tools compatible with the standard. To view solution providers who are verified to report using the IPC-1754-Am2, please visit the Verified Solution Provider Page.

IPC-1754Am2 Materials and Substances Declaration for Aerospace and Defense and Other Industries, published in 2020, is available in the IPC Online Store at https://shop.ipc.org/IPC-1754-AM2-English-D
