IMI, Inc. Earns IPC-1791 Listing After Intensive Audit


Reading time ( words)

IMI, Inc., a specialty fabricator of printed circuit boards and substrates based in Haverhill, Mass., has successfully completed an intensive audit to IPC-1791, Trusted Electronic Designer, Fabricator and Assembler Requirements and has earned a Qualified Manufacturer’s Listing (QML) under IPC’s Validation Services program.

Requirements for certification and QML listing to IPC-1791 includes: product and quality system, supply chain risk management system (SCRM), security system including compliance to NIST SP 800-171, Export Control Laws (ITAR and EAR), and a chain of custody system (ChoC) review.

Peter Bigelow, IMI, Inc. president and CEO said, “Realizing the critical importance of protecting our customer’s Intellectual Property (IP), IMI began the process toward certification five years ago by retaining IT and security services firm Neoscope Technology Solutions to perform a review of out IT and security infrastructure and protocols with an eye toward full compliance to NIST SP 800-171.

“From Neoscope’s review, we put together a gap analysis and action plan and committed the resources -- financial and staff -- to meet and exceed all requirements,” Bigelow added. “Certification to IPC-1791, which incorporates NIST-SP 800-171 Rev. 2 confirms that IMI has successfully put in place robust and effective cyber, physical and chain-of-control protocols to assure our customers’ critical IP is secure. IMI is proud to have achieved the distinction of being the fourth circuit board fabricator to be certified as a trusted supplier under IPC’s stringent Validation Services program.”

“We are pleased to recognize IMI’s QML,” said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. “This accreditation has earned them a spot on IPC’s global network of rigorously vetted, trusted sources, giving them an edge on their competition.”

As the electric vehicle market expands, it is useful to hear from someone with a goal of creating a significant position in that market. Schaltbau Group is one of those companies. In fact, one might say because of its string position in the rail marketplace, the company has been dealing in EVs for years. I sat down recently with Jim Tullo, president of Schaltbau’s North American operations, to talk about their current and future business. I strongly advise you to dig into this one.
