SMART Group to Host smart-e-webinar about Achieving Compliance with a Modern ESD-Control Standard

Apr 29, 2016

SMART Group, Europe’s largest technical trade association focusing on Surface Mount And Related Technologies, announces that it will host the Webinar "ESD Three Steps to Heaven" on Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 2:30 PM BST.

A new version of the ESD S20:20 standard was published in 2014, and a new version of the IEC 61340-5-1 standard is expected in 2016. Compliance with these standards requires more than the purchase of wrist straps, bench mats and other ESD-control equipment. Users are expected to write an ESD-control program to suit their facility and processes. As each site may implement different ESD-control measures, documentation is an essential requirement. Equipment used for ESD control must be selected to do the job intended, and regular testing is needed to ensure it continues to work according to plan. But, all of this would be ineffective if personnel were inadequately trained to put the ESD-control measures into practice. 

This webinar provides an overview of what is required for compliance with ESD control standards 61340-5-1 and ESD S20:20. It will be of particular interest to those who are considering or actively working towards compliance, or simply want to know how to develop and maintain a modern and effective ESD-control program.

The three main topics include: 

  • Step 1: Planning for ESD control
  • Step 2: Selecting ESD-control equipment and checking that it still works 
  • Step 3: ESD Training
