Purpose of the IECQ System
The main purpose of the IECQ System is to assess the quality of an organization (includes OEMs) and production for participating countries according to the international specifications. IECQ qualified electronic components that are produced under IECQ product specification requirements in one member country and shipped to another member country do not undergo further testing. This facilitates international trade in the electronic components.
