Professional On-Site ESD Audits In The UK

A thorough and effective ESD audit you won’t find anywhere else!

Regular auditing is a key factor in the successful management of an ESD Control Program to prevent damage and failures to products. Whether you’ve recently set up an ESD Control Program or you already have an existing one, auditing your area is essential in determining how effective your ESD Control Program is and whether it meets the current ESD Standards. Taking the right steps to develop a comprehensive ESD Control Program begins with implementing and enforcing audit checks.

What Is An ESD Audit?

An ESD audit checks to see whether all the ESD-control products and practices are within compliance to the IEC 61340-5-1 Standard. An ESD audit provides a constant reminder to personnel of their responsibilities, and gives management the necessary feedback for any corrective action. Typically, the audit is based on an ESD Control Program that has been defined, approved by management, and implemented at all operating levels. Audits allow companies to further improve and optimise their ESD Control Program and fully comply with IEC 61340-5-1 minimum recommendations and acceptable industry practices.

An efficient and cost-effective ESD Control Program should be treated as an on-going process, like any good quality control system. As such, it should never be treated as an event. By keeping ESD control an on-going quality process, program costs and resulting ROI can be monitored so that the company can maximise total program value.

Who Needs An ESD Audit?

Audits are essential for many companies and subcontractors in helping them improve and optimise their ESD Control Programme.

ESD audits should be conducted for those who:

  • Have an upcoming customer audit and want to make sure they are compliant with the IEC-61340-5-1 standard.
  • Have an upcoming ISO or British standard audit.
  • Setting up a new ESD area.
  • Experienced unexplained electronics failures in assembly and productions areas.
  • Concerned about ESD and not having much experience in ESD.

Benefits of An ESD Audit:

  • Prevents problems before they arise.
  • Reduces risk of product damage from ESD events both during production and any latent damage.
  • Assesses the current level of the ESD Control Program and identify areas which may be weak.
  • Feedback and suggestions provided for continuous improvement.
  • Ensures confidence on any upcoming audits as well as no unexpected failures during audit.
  • Improves professionalism to visitors by managing these risks and making them visible.

What Our ESD Audit Involves

At the start of your audit, our ESD auditor will assess your company’s current ESD control items, procedures and workspace to determine the current level you are working at and to see whether they are in compliance with the IEC 61340-5-1 Standard. After these checks have been made and documented, the auditor will then use their findings to create a certificate of ESD controls. This certification will be delivered to the company. A review will then be conducted of the end-to-end process from goods in to shipping products out for ESD risk.

Our ESD auditor will then identify appropriate ESD protective products and suggest ESD controls or improved methods that fit with the business based on practicality and budget for the company, ultimately to satisfy the IEC 61340-5-1 and upcoming audits. This will be followed with a full report of findings which will be presented to the company. This will highlight any major non-conformances for immediate rectification, recommendations for improvement and conclusion of findings.
