This specification intends to allow the device manufacturer the freedom to enact best commercial practices while still delivering products that meet military performance needs. Certification to this standard is intended for manufacturers of the kinds of devices mentioned above that wish to be suppliers to the Department of Defense. ASC has MIL Certification on the following products: FR4, Polyimide, Flex, Rigid-Flex, Pure Hydrocarbon and Hydrocarbon Hybrid.
MIL-PRF-55110 is a certification based on a military performance specification whose scope specifies the performance and qualification requirements for rigid single-sided, double-sided, and multilayer printed wiring boards with or without plated through holes.
This specification establishes the performance and qualification requirements for flexible and rigid-flex printed wiring boards with or without plated through holes.
ITAR stands for The International Traffic in Arms Regulations and is a set of government regulations related to defense exports. The regulations include policies and provisions related to prohibited exports, imports and sales to or from specific countries, exceptions among many others.
All manufacturers, exporters and brokers of defense articles, related to technical data and defense services as defined on the United States Munitions List are required to register.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has tested representative samples of our products and determined that the product meets specific, defined requirements. These requirements are often based on UL's published and nationally recognized Standards for Safety. ASC's UL certifications include:
ASC also has Canadian UL certification.
ASC has met the criteria and has been recognized by the ChicagoMSDC as a certified minority business enterprise (MBE). As an MBE, we are able to effectively compete in the procurement process for supply chain diversity.
