NPFC - MIL-STD-1686
ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE CONTROL PROGRAM FOR PROTECTION OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC PARTS, ASSEMBLIES AND EQUIPMENT (EXCLUDING ELECTRICALLY INITIATED EXPLOSIVE DEVICES)
|Publication Date:||25 October 1995|
The purpose of this standard is to establish comprehensive requirements for an ESD control program to minimize the effects of ESD on parts, assemblies, and equipment. An effective ESD control program will increase reliability and decrease both maintenance actions and lifetime costs. This standard shall be tailored for various types of acquisitions.
This standard defines the performance requirements for an ESD control program for electrical and electronic parts, assemblies, and equipment, susceptible to damage from ESD. Electrically initiated explosive devices and part level design are excluded from these requirements. This standard covers identification, testing, classification, assembly and equipment design criteria, protected areas, handling procedures, training, marking of hardware, protective covering and packaging, and provides for quality assurance requirements, audits and reviews.
This standard shall apply to Government activities and contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and vendors. When this standard is applied to Government activities the term "contractor" shall be replaced with "Government activity" as appropriate.
