APCT Inc. Earns IPC-1791, Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) as Trusted Electronics Fabricator

Jan 18, 2022

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC-1791, Trusted Electronics Fabricator Requirements Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) to APCT Inc.’s printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing facilities in Anaheim and Orange County, Calif. 

Following initial audits by IPC, both facilities passed stringent Type 2 fabricator requirements, helping to optimize product quality, reliability, and consistency across the entire manufacturing operations, earning both 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.

Steve Robinson, CEO of APCT Inc. commented on the accomplishment, “APCT is dedicated to the protection of CUI data and the trusted printed circuit board manufacturing needs of our customers. We strive to deliver best in class solutions with our industry leading cycle times, technology and service, as we support the current and future needs of our highly diversified and expanding customer base.”

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 the APCT Inc. facilities in Anaheim and Orange County, California on becoming members of IPC's network of trusted QML suppliers."
