ESD S20.20: Electrostatic Discharge


An effective Electrostatic Discharge Control Program, such as the one outlined in ESD S20.20, can help reduce quality defects and increase customer satisfaction.

ESD S20.20 is an ANSI Standard that provides organizations with guidance on how to develop, implement and maintain a system to protect and handle ESD sensitive items. The SD Control Program has two main sections, Control Program Administrative Requirements and Control Program Technical Requirements.

Registration by DEKRA ensures that your ESD S20.20 system meets the intent of the standard and identifies areas for improvement. DEKRA is accredited by the Electrostatic Discharge Association’s third party certification program. An ISO 9001 Quality System compliments an ESD control program. However, your company is not required to be ISO 9001 certified to receive ESD S20.20 certification.
