“If ISO 9001 or IATF 16949 evaluates the entire system of a company, an IPC QML validates whether the enterprise can manufacture, assemble, and supply products according to IPC standards. It helps businesses understand issues related to quality management and process technology, making it a crucial aspect directly impacting product quality,” said Jeong-hag Park, quality technology team director at Ko-M Tech.  . “This holds great significance for us. With 23 years of continuous development, we have gained extensive experience in EMS manufacturing and our own quality system.
