Wondering if anyone has ever had to prove IPC-a-610 compliance to a Federal Agency (Not DOD)? If so how did you accomplish it and what was the Federal Agency's response after sending Proof of Compliance? Thank you in Advance

There is no such thing as "IPCA610 compliance". The correct way of looking at this that the boards were inspected to IPC Class I, II or III Revision XX (current Rev is "E") and met all of the criteria.

From a commercial standpoint it would greatly substantiate your case if you put in a CofC signed by somehwat currently certified to IPC CIS or CIT and state their certification number and expiration date).

the other way some clients work this issue is to have a 3rd party referee the inspection (if there are issues).

The inspection criteria should always be defined upfront!

Good Luck
