China Set to Impose Stricter Regulations on PCB Industry


Reading time ( words)

China will implement a new set of strict regulations on the operations of the PCB industry on February 1, which may threaten the survival of small- to medium-size makers, according to a Digitimes report.

In addition to having higher requirements concerning environmental matters, the new regulations will require makers to have technological patents for their products, to set aside at least 3% of their annual revenues for R&D, and to achieve annual utilization rates of over 50%. Digitimes added that the regulations impose specific requirements on different type of applications, but makers of PCBs for aerospace and military applications will not be affected by the new regulations.
