UL Certification:

UL Mark Inside Track Cabling is fully certified to use the Underwriters Laboratories approved logo on our products. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is an independent product safety testing and certification organization. The UL Mark on a product means that it has been tested by UL and determined to meet UL's requirements and compliance with U.S. (UL) safety standards. As a manufacturer of UL certified products ITC must demonstrate compliance with the appropriate safety requirements, many of which are developed by UL. ITC must also employ and maintain a program to ensure that each copy of the product complies with the appropriate requirements. UL conducts periodic, unannounced follow-up inspections at our facility to verify and ensure ongoing compliance. If a product design is to be modified, a representative example must be retested before a UL Mark can be attached to the new product or its packaging.

IPC/WHMA-A-620:

IPC MarkInside Track Cabling manufactures all of its products to the current IPC/WHMA-A-620B standard. Since its debut in 2002, the IPC-WHMA-A-620 standard for the acceptance of cable and wire harness assemblies enjoyed almost immediate international acceptance, and it quickly became the most important process, materials and inspection document in our industry. The standard was jointly developed by the Wiring Harness Manufacturers Association(WHMA) and the IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries. Revision A of the standard, published in July 2006, contained a number of refinements related to harness testing. In preparing the current Revision B of the A-620 standard published October 1, 2012, the WHMA and the IPC reviewed and resolved more than 400 user comments on revision A. "No chapter has been untouched, from minor wording changes to major overhaul," states Lyle Fanning, WHMA chairman and former president. "The new revision also contains more than 100 new or updated pictures and illustrations." The A-620 standard is being followed by harness assemblers in 42 countries and has been translated into seven languages: English, Chinese, German, Danish, French, Polish and Spanish,

FDA / cGMP Compliance:

FDA Mark As a manufacturer of high quality cable and harness assemblies, many of which are utilized within the medical and medical device industry, Inside Track Cabling maintains strict compliance to the FDA Quality System (QS) Regulation/Medical Device Good Manufacturing Practices.

ITAR Registration and Compliance:

ITAR Mark Although Inside Track Cabling is not currently registered with the U.S. Department of State, compliance to International Trade in Arms Regulations remains stringently controlled and maintained throughout our organization. So, "Why ITAR"? ITAR registration is required for any U.S. company to manufacture controlled defense articles, defined on the U.S. Munitions List (USML) under the U.S. Department of State, and is a precondition to apply for an export license or exemption. The cable assemblies currently manufactured by ITC are NOT controlled on the USML. Any of these assemblies that are classified under the U.S. Department of Commerce, are classified as EAR99 - No License Required. ITC has previously held ITAR registration at the request of our military customers and will be required to do so again should a customer request a specially designed (customized) cable assembly meeting the criteria of a controlled item. Under the Export Control Reform issued in April 2013, the definition of "specially designed" has changed and may likely exclude any designs that ITC might produce for controlled military applications, based on the performance characteristics, form, fit, and function of our cable assemblies. As the Export Control Reform is applied and understood throughout the marketplace, ITC will re-evaluate the necessity of renewing our ITAR registration in the future. Additional information in regard to our commitment to ITAR (U.S. Department of State) and EAR (Bureau of Industry and Security) requirements can be located at

RoHS and WEEE:

RoHS / WEEE Marks RoHS has become an industry standard. Inside Track Cabling continuously updates its RoHS policies and procedures to ensure complete and accurate fulfillment of each individual customer's requirement(s). RoHS, also known as Lead-Free, stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance. RoHS impacts the entire electronics industry. The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills. They are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling. Any business that sells applicable electronic products, sub-assemblies or components directly to EU countries, or sells to resellers, distributors or integrators that in turn sell products to EU countries, is impacted if they utilize any of the restricted materials.

REACH:

Reach Mark On June 1st, 2007, the European Union Commission (E.U.C.) adopted REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals EC 1907/2006) regulating chemicals and their safe use.
