Taiwan Union Technology Corporation is First to Pass Recertification Under IPC-4101 Qualified Products Listing

Mar 08, 2020

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded and renewed an IPC-4101 Qualified Products Listing (QPL) to Taiwan Union Technology Corporation (TUC). TUC is an electronics materials manufacturing company headquartered in Jhubei, Hsinchu County, Taiwan. TUC was the first manufacturer worldwide to gain QPL listing for copper-clad laminates and prepregs in February 2017. TUC successfully renewed and completed an intensive second audit based on IPC's foremost standard on base materials for laminates and prepregs: IPC 4101, Specification for Base Materials for Rigid and Multilayer Printed Boards.

"TUC was proud to be the first base-materials manufacturer worldwide to be QPL certified for IPC-4101 specification sheets 102, 126 and 130 three years ago,” said George Hsin, chief strategy officer at TUC. “Over the last three years, being on the QPL meant that TUC has met the highest standards for production and quality, similar to that of the old military QPL of MIL-S-13949. PWB suppliers made this QPL their first screen to selecting their base materials. The facilities and the products on the QPL were trusted by the entire electronics supply chain. At TUC we were happy to see the QPL concept brought back by IPC to their base materials standard IPC-4101.”

IPC's Validations Services QPL/QML Program was developed to promote supply chain verification. It also provides auditing and certification of electronics companies' products and identifies processes which conform to IPC standards. "TUC has differentiated itself from the competition by becoming part of IPC's global network of trusted industry sources," said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. "We are pleased to recognize TUC as the first member of trusted QPL suppliers to be recertified to meet IPC-4101."
