IPC (Institute for interconnecting and packaging electronic circuits) is the leading international standard that unites all sections of the industry (designers, manufactures, assemblers and OEM's). Faraday, manufactures its PCBs in accordance with IPC-A-600 ensuring that all of our customers products conform to a proven standard of Quality.
UL (Underwriters Laboratories)
UL is an international safety non-profit independent organization that tests material and equipment for safety and flammability status.
At Faraday we have accreditation to produce circuit boards using our approved UL material – our file reference is ZPMV2.E173108, flammability recognition 94V-0.
Faraday gained their first ISO accreditation in 1999 with the ISO: 9002 Quality system. With regular six monthly assessments carried out by British Standards Institute, Faraday embraced, implemented and strengthened the Quality procedures within the company.
During 2003 we implemented a smooth transition to the ISO 9001: 2000 Quality system and in October 2009 we gained certification to ISO 9001: 2008. Again through a pro-active role and regular BSI assessments, we have evolved this into our Business Management System to ensure that Quality will continuously improve in all areas of the company.
In July 2010 we began working towards achievement of ISO 14001, the international standard for environmental management. We were certified by BSI in April 2011.
Institute of Circuit Technology (ICT)
In recognition of their experience and knowledge within the PCB industry a number of key Faraday staff have been elected as members or even fellows of the ICT. The ICT is at the forefront of technical development in the PCB industry organising high level seminars and training programmes.
Investors In People
The Investors in People Standard provides a framework that helps organisations to improve performance and realise objectives through the effective management and development of their people. Faraday first achieved IiP recognition in 1999 and remains fully committed to the true spirit of the Standard and realising its benefits for both ourselves and our customers. We last retained recognition in November 2016 for a further three year period.
