No matter where your company is in the timeline of preparing for compliance, IPC has some essential tools to assist your transition.

IPC-1752, Materials Declaration Management

Thanks to efforts by IPC’s 2-18 Supplier Declaration Committee, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Adobe™, the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI), RosettaNet and other dedicated volunteers, IPC-1752, Materials Declaration Management standard, has restored order to the chaos that was multiple reporting forms and formats for materials declaration.

IPC-1752 outlines a supply chain materials declaration format and process that provides a simple, effective approach to collecting, tracking and disclosing product material content information. The standard establishes electronic data formats and provides standardized forms to simplify the exchange of materials declaration information while improving efficiency and reducing costs.

Suppliers and their customers can use IPC-1752 to exchange data at their choice of three reporting levels which are organized into six reporting classes:

  • Class 1 – RoHS reporting at a homogeneous level in yes/no format
  • Class 2 – Same as Class 1 with the addition of manufacturing information
  • Class 3 – RoHS reporting at a homogeneous level in yes/no format and JIG  (Joint Industry Guide) level A and B a the homogeneous material level and other substances at the part level
  • Class 4 – Same as Class 3 with the addition of manufacturing information
  • Class 5 – RoHS reporting at a homogeneous level in yes/no format and JIG level A and B at the homogeneous material level and other substances at the homogeneous level.
  • Class 6 – Same as Class 5 with the addition of manufacturing information.
