International Training and Certification Program

Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies

IPC/WHMA-A-620 enjoyed almost immediate international acceptance since its first release in 2002, and quickly became the most important process, materials and inspection standard for the cable and wire harness industry. Developed with support of the Wire Harness Manufacturer’s Association, the document and training programs have been published in several languages and the standard has earned an international reputation as the source for end-product acceptance. Now updated to lead free for terminal soldering criteria, IPC/WHMA-A-620 has been embraced by original equipment manufacturers and electronics manufacturing services companies worldwide.
