A Full Material Disclosure (FMD) is useful for your customer to assess any material compliance risks against applicable regulations or declarable substance lists and potentially reduce the number of compliance requests made to suppliers.
IPC-1752A is a common industry standard used for the exchange of data between systems. It has established a common reporting format for material declaration data exchange between supply chains and supports bulk materials, components, printed circuit boards, sub-assemblies, and final products. The current standard for the IPC-1752A form is XML format.
A Class D IPC-1752A FMD declares every substance in the product down to the Homogeneous Level, including location, mass, and/or PPM.
