TPP verified as an IPC 1752A WAM 1, 2 & 3 solution provider 2018



The IPC 1752A standard is used extensively for communicating compliance information throughout the supply chain for electrical and electronic products. To meet changing industry requirements and legislation, the standard is regularly updated and maintained by industry experts.

IPC introduced an annual review process for solution providers in 2014 in which a review committee of industry experts verify that companies IPC 1752A XML files comply with current requirements.

All solution providers are invited to submit example XML files reporting IPC 1752A Class A, C and/or D in Request/Reply and/or Distribute mode. The review committee inspects, comments and verifies that the files submitted;

  • Comply with IPC 1752A XML file format
  • Use IPC 1752A lists of regulated substances and exemption correctly

The standard includes an XML Schema outlining the structure and rules to be followed in the IPC 1752A declaration files. It specifies types of data elements to be included as well as the order in which they must be reported. To accurately communicate materials information using the standard, correct use of defined industry naming conventions is critical. It is also essential to accurately use the dynamic lists of regulated substances and exemptions for compliance with the standards.

Total Parts Plus is pleased to announce that we are a verified solution provider of IPC 1752A Class A, C and D declarations in both Request/Reply and Distribute mode in the 2018 review process and we look forward to participating in the upcoming 2019 process starting in April.
