IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC-1791, Trusted Electronic Designer, Fabricator and Assembler Requirements Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) to TTM Technologies, Inc.’s facilities in Sterling, Virginia. and Stafford Springs, Connecticut. Following initial audits by IPC, the Sterling, Virginia. facility passed stringent fabricator requirements, while the Stafford Springs, Connecticut facility passed designer and assembler requirements, 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.

Catherine Gridley, executive vice president and president of TTM’s aerospace & defense business, said, "TTM is proud to be part of the IPC-1791 Trusted Supplier network. TTM is now certified to offer our customers a trusted solution for design services, printed circuit fabrication, and specialty assembly. This initiative is an important part of our continued commitment to our customers and the defense industry."

IPC's Validation Services QPL/QML Program was developed to promote supply chain verification and recognition. It also provides auditing and certification of electronics companies' products and identifies processes which conform to IPC standards.

"Different from other audit programs, IPC's Validation Services Programs uniquely provides 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 recognize TTM Technologies, Inc.’s Sterling, Va. and Stafford Springs, Conn. facilities on becoming members of IPC's network of trusted QML suppliers."
