Summit Interconnect Earns IPC-1791, Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) as Trusted Electronics Fabricator

Oct 18, 2021

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC-1791, Trusted Electronics Fabricator Requirements Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) to three of Summit Interconnect’s printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing facilities in Anaheim, Orange and Santa Clara, Calif. Following initial audits by IPC, all three facilities passed stringent Type 2 fabricator requirements, helping to optimize product quality, reliability, and consistency across the entire manufacturing operations, earning the three facilities a spot-on IPC’s global network of rigorously vetted, trusted sources.

Requirements for certification and QML listing to IPC-1791 includes product and quality system, supply chain risk management system (SCRM), security system including compliance to NIST SP 800-171, Export Control Laws (ITAR and EAR), and a chain of custody system (ChoC) review.

Shane Whiteside, president and CEO of Summit Interconnect commented on the accomplishment, “Summit is committed to secure and trusted printed circuit board manufacturing for our customers. We fully recognize that our work is critical to the defense of our country. Obtaining IPC-1791 certification at multiple Summit locations underscores our commitment to being the trusted PCB supplier of choice for military systems and platforms.”

IPC's Validation Services QPL/QML Program was developed to promote supply chain verification and recognition. It also provides auditing and qualification of electronics companies' products and identifies processes which conform to IPC standards. The IPC-1791 QML verifies security systems and recognizes companies for either trusted electronic designer, fabricator, or assembler ensuring a high level of integrity.

"IPC's Validation Services Audit Programs uniquely provide technical and in-depth assessments of products and processes in accordance with IPC standards," said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. "We are pleased to especially recognize Summit Interconnect three facilities in Anaheim, Orange and Santa Clara, California on becoming members of IPC's network of trusted QML suppliers."
