This important standard, entitled Development of an Electrostatic Discharge Control Program, covers the requirements necessary to design, establish, implement, and maintain an ESD control program to protect electrical or electronic parts, assemblies and equipment susceptible to ESD damage.
S20.20 is a process document, and provides ESD control plan guidance; one of its requirements is having a “compliance veriﬁcation plan” as a component of the ESD control plan. Per S20.20, paragraph 6.1.3., Compliance Veriﬁcation Plan:
