Introduction to IPC Standards
For more than 60 years, the global electronics industry has turned to IPC industry standards to manufacture consistently highly reliable, high quality products. 300+ active multilingual industry standards are accepted worldwide for nearly every stage of the electronic product development cycle, from design and purchasing through assembly and acceptance. Along with improved quality, IPC standards help control costs and streamline communication between suppliers, manufacturers, assemblers, and their customers.
Here's how IPC membership can help you leverage the industry's leading standards:
“Using IPC standards has reduced scrap by 75%, increased productivity by 35% due to decreased rework, produced an outgoing yield of 99.92%, and developed a better relationship with our suppliers by increasing our understanding of key characteristics during an incoming inspection.” - Risk Manager, Small Business Electronics Company
You can designate the recipient of your complimentary copy of new standards releases by emailing Contact.Us@ipc.org. IPC will then email the designated recipient a username and password. Companies will still have access to the complimentary standard within 90 days of publication.
*NOTE: Translations, amendments, addendums, incorporations, or supplements are not part of the one complimentary copy of each new standard program.
