BANNOCKBURN, IL – A new standard from IPC establishes requirements for exchanging information on materials used to protect products during shipment.
IPC-1758, Declaration Requirements for Shipping, Pack and Packing Materials, describes information exchange content between supply chain partners with respect to packing, and includes references to regulations impacting materials, marking, recycling information and recycled content that may be desired to complete the data package.
When used in combination with the latest version of the IPC-1751 sectional standard, the resulting document set defines the declaration information.
IPC-1758 is one in a series of IPC-175x data exchange standards that permit segmentation of declaration details based on the subject and scope of the declaration.
IPC-1758 pertains to both hard copy and electronic data descriptions. Because this standard allows for the creation of a record between suppliers and their customers, data communicated may be used to help support and demonstrate due diligence.
