EMS Solutions maintains product excellence through adherence to industry and government regulations and standards, and they have the accreditation to affirm their compliance.
A high-quality end product is essential in maintaining the competitive standing of an EMS manufacturer in the marketplace. Producers of electronic devices are very choosy when it comes to selecting the best vendors. By selecting only those vendors that comply with key standards, they can guarantee that the vendors’ components will not compromise the electronic device being assembled.
Products in the electronics industry change and improve constantly. In order for a manufacturer to meet international industry standards, it will have to pass a certification audit based on the benchmarks established by industry experts.
IPC, also known as the Association Connecting Electronics Industries, is a trade association that works to systematize the assembly and production requirements of electronic equipment and assemblies. IPC has the accreditation of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). It is globally known for its high bar and has published the most widely embraced acceptability standards in the electronics industry.
The IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, is the standard used worldwide by original equipment manufacturers and EMS companies. There are more than 3,500 trainers who are qualified to teach and test on this standard on a worldwide basis.
ISO 9001 is the international standard that establishes the requirements for a quality management system. It is used by organizations to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. It is the only standard in the ISO 9000 series to which organizations can certify.
ISO 9001 helps certified organizations to organize and improve their efficiency of processes.
This is the international management system standard for the Aircraft, Space and Defense Industry. It provides suppliers with a comprehensive quality control system for providing safe and reliable products to the aerospace industry. An organization can register with AS9100 if it creates a Quality Management System that meets AS9100 requirements.
The Restriction of Hazardous Substance Directive was adopted by the European Union in February 2003. The directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. It is closely related to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive. This directive sets collection, recycling, and recovery targets for electrical goods, which is a part of an initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic electronic waste.
Importance of certification
When electronics manufacturing services receive accreditations from different certifying bodies, they can assure their customers that their products are in compliance with international standards. Compliance results in safe and reliable products that allow electronics manufacturers to uphold the quality of their brands.
EMS has been certified by key industry and professional associations to guarantee that their products meet or exceed relevant standards.
