IPC News: IEC Electronics Corp. First to Earn Certification as Qualified Manufacturer to IPC/WHMA-A-620

Nov 12, 2014

IPC’s Validation Services Program has awarded the first IPC/WHMA-A-620 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) to IEC Electronics Corporation’s Newark, New York and Albuquerque, New Mexico locations; and Southern California Braiding facility in Bell Gardens, California.

The three facilities were the first to successfully complete an intensive audit to IPC/WHMA-A-620, Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies. The sites met or exceeded the requirements for the electronics industry’s most rigorous classification, Class 3, which is intended for high-performance electronics assemblies. As a result, the company will be listed as an IPC-trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. IEC Electronics and other trusted sources of supply can be found on IPC’s QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database at www.ipcvalidation.org.

The IPC/WHMA-A-620 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) complements our existing portfolio of IPC Validation Service’s certifications,” said Mark Northrup, IEC’s VP of Advanced Technical Operations & Strategy. “We are honored to be recognized as the first to obtain the IPC/WHMA-A-620 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) and the addition of IEC Electronics to the IPC network of global trusted industry sources. IEC is always focused on customer product quality and reliability.”

IEC Electronics was among the first companies to participate in IPC’s new Validations Services QPL/QML Program which was launched in 2013 and was the first to earn a QML to IPC-J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 standards. Developed to promote supply chain verification, the program provides auditing and certification of electronics companies’ products and processes which conform to IPC standards.

“IEC Electronics has differentiated itself from the competition by achieving this certification. They have proven their dedication to consistent high quality by complying with IPC standards,” said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. “We are pleased to recognize the IEC family of companies as the first to earn QML certification to IPC/WHMA-A-620.”
