IEC Quality Assessment System for Electronic Components

Electrical and electronic devices and systems often comprise hundreds of components and parts. Established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in 1980, IECQ is a global certification and approval scheme for electronic components, associated materials, assemblies and processes.

Acquiring IECQ certification offers several advantages to electrical and electronic component manufacturers and their customers, including product quality assurance, reduced costs, enhanced process and market acceptance.
