What is IPC-1752A?
IPC-1752A, also known as the Materials Declaration Management Standard (Revision A), enables manufacturers to share material disclosure data of their products in a standardized format. The IPC-1752A standard, which is based on an XML schema, is generated via third-party solution providers whose software tools are compatible with the standard. The current version of IPC-1752A is not supported in PDF format. The IPC-1752 standard is developed by IPC, a trade association within the electronic equipment and assemblies industry, whose goal is to standardize assembly and production process requirements.

How to Export an IPC-1752A Report Using Toxnot
To create an IPC-1752A report using Toxnot, go to MY PRODUCTS or MY MATERIALS on the left-hand toolbar and select any product or material that you would like to create a report for.
Next, within the product record, select the Report drop-down in the top row toolbar. From here, you will be able to select the “Export IPC1752A XML” function under “Compliance” to create the IPC-1752A report.
At the next window, there are several main sections for you to go through.
Then, you can review the information that Toxnot generates based on your product or material data. The data generated will cover the three following classes of material declarations that Toxnot supports within the IPC-1752A standard:
1. Class A – Query List:
· Manufacturers select ‘True’ or ‘False’ for query statements pertaining to the product. Toxnot will automatically select the query statements based on the determinations and the substances in the bill of materials (BOM).
· IPC-1752A Class A also contains a list of RoHS exemptions, which is extracted from the product’s compliance information within Toxnot.
2. Class C – Substance Categories:
· Manufacturers confirm if certain substance categories exist within the BOM.
· Toxnot will automatically identify the substance categories and list them. The manufacturer will have to select if some substance categories are over or under threshold values.
3. Class D – Homogenous Materials
· Class D deals with full material disclosure. Here you can see all the substances in your BOM and apply any RoHS exemption to them.
· You can also delete any of the detected substance or substance categories in both Class C and Class D.
Once you have reviewed the data, you can select the checkboxes of the IPC-1752A Classes that you want to export. Then you can select the “Generate & Download XML File” button to download your IPC-1752A report in the XML format.
