These regulations specifically address printed boards and printed board designs and affect the entire electronics supply chain, from OEMs to printed board manufacturers and designers.
A series of Webinars next month will help electronics suppliers understand changes in export control regulations that go into effect in October. IPC will hold a three-part Weminar series on July 9, 16 and 23 to help electronics manufacturers understand the changes and their impact on their businesses.

Scarlott will offer tips for the unwary, lessons learned from recent actions and compliance during the period when reforms are coming into play.
