The Material Declaration Management Standard: IPC-1752A
A reporting format in an XML Schema used for data exchanges and material declarations
What Is the IPC-1752A Standard?
The Material Declaration Management standard, known as the IPC-1752A standard, was developed by the IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries (IPC). It establishes reporting formats for material declaration data exchanges between supply chain participants and supports reporting of bulk materials, components, printed circuit boards, sub-assemblies and products. The reporting format, in an XML Schema, allows material declarations to be uploaded into the Assent Compliance Platform (ACP) with ease. As new substances become restricted, companies already have access to required data, eliminating the need to reach out to their supply chain for additional information.

Upload, edit and generate IPC-1752A and IPC-1754 XML declaration files with the Assent Materials Declaration Tool.
The IPC-1752A Standard Establishes Four Classes of Material Declarations:
Supplier states if their product meets the defined query list
A higher level of material declaration in which the amount of different groupings of materials within a product is stated
Product level material declaration based on the JIG-101 material list and REACH substance list
Full Material Disclosure (FMD) at the homogeneous level
