“We are delighted to have achieved re-certification ” said Ron Euer, Quality & Lean Leader at Creation Technologies. “Back in 2006, our Santa Clara facility was only the third site in the entire United States to be certified under the IPC RoHS Lead Free Process Capability Program. With the RoHS recast and other impending changes to global legislation, this new re-certification demonstrates our continuous improvement efforts, gives our customers an immediate insight into our RoHS capabilities and assures them that Creation Technologies has diligently designed, maintained, and validated our lead free processes.”
The IPC Certification for Lead Free Electronics Assembly Process Capability program is an audit of an organization’s facility and allows a company to benchmark their lead-free processes and to judge its capabilities to meet the requirements for RoHS-compliant or lead-free assembly. The IPC certification audit includes a rigorous series of steps culminating in a two-day on-site audit of the facility’s assembly operations.
IPC (www.ipc.org) is a global trade association based in Bannockburn, Illinois, dedicated to the competitive excellence and financial success of its 2,400 member companies which represent all facets of the electronics interconnect industry, including design, printed circuit board manufacturing and electronics assembly. As a member-driven organization and leading source for industry standards, training, market research and public policy advocacy, IPC supports programs to meet the needs of an estimated $1.5 trillion global electronics industry. IPC maintains additional offices in New Mexico, Virginia, California, Sweden and China.
