|Publication Date:||1 January 2020|
This standard provides minimum requirements, policies and procedures for printed board design, fabrication and assembly organizations and/or companies to become trusted sources for markets requiring high levels of confidence in the integrity of delivered products. These trusted sources shall ensure quality, supply chain risk management (SCRM), security and chain of custody (ChoC).
Trusted source certification of non-U.S. printed board design, fabrication and assembly organizations requires a sponsor and are required to meet the requirements in Appendix D, in lieu of section 3.3 and Appendix B.
Demonstration of the ability to meet and maintain the requirements of this standard as trusted design, fabrication or assembly organization benefits customers that provide end-products for markets desiring a high level of integrity assurance (e.g., commercial, industrial, military, aerospace, automotive and medical).
In the context of this standard, the terms trust and trusted are used to reflect a commitment to delivered product and process integrity assurance by printed board designers, fabricators and assemblers. The user should not confuse this certification with defense-microelectro
