IPC COMMUNITY 26 SPRING 2023 underpinned by IPC-1791 certifi- cation. A very large portion of our work at Summit is DoD-related through the military primes, so we have made a commensurate com- mitment to IPC-1791 with four of our facilities—Santa Clara, Orange, Anaheim (California), and Toronto (Ontario)—certified to IPC-1791. How long did the process take? What advice would you give other members preparing for an audit? As with any audit, your timeline to certification will be directly relative to the commitment you have already made to having your business in good order. For those already building IPC Class 3 prod- ucts, are AS 9100 certified, adhere to ITAR/EAR, are in line with NIST 800-171 compliance, and have strong processes relative to supply chain and chain of custody, certi- fication to IPC-1791 will be a very efficient process. My advice to those companies is to get on the audit schedule now with the goal of being qualified. If the conditions described above do not portray your company's current qualification set and you support our military or other trusted sector work, you should absolutely turn to the IPC-1791 team to audit for gaps and get on the pathway to IPC-1791 qualification. The feedback from the IPC Validation Services audit team will be very prescriptive with the actions required to qualifica- tion clearly identified and this can become your company's roadmap to overall compliance.
