Making a Submission: IPC-1754 (AD-DSL)

The AD-DSL is a list of substances subject to supplier substance reporting in the aerospace and defence supply chain. IAEG® has identified regulated chemical substances of concern to the international aerospace and defence industry that are subject to current use, product content restrictions or reporting requirements with potential impacts on the industry or its customers. The AD-DSL is used for supplier reporting of chemical substances that are included in its products, are used in the production of those products or are required for operation or maintenance of those products.

The AD-DSL was developed through collaboration with all IAEG member companies and is actively managed to ensure currency, while continuing to meet the needs of the AD industry.
