Highly Certified Matters in Electronics Manufacturing

Certs.jpgMany electronics contract manufacturers (CM’s) are highly certified in their particular market focus areas. Certifications such as AS9100, IPC 610 Class 3, J-STD 001 and ISO13485 demonstrate the commitment to excellence of a potential contract manufacturer. Certifications provide a level of (objective) accountability that, first and foremost, protects you the customer. Certifications ensure that the contract manufacturer remains compliant with current industry standards, regulations, and best-practices which directly impact the quality and reliability of the products and services that the electronics contract manufacturer provides.
