Global Industry Practices Council

The Supply Chain Council (SCC) provides a forum to develop and discuss business and supply chain issues that drive best practices within our industry. The SCC members on this council work to identify common global problems and issues, formally organize committees to address the issues, provide direction and guidance, and then help drive implementation. This activity results in the production of guidelines, specifications, or position papers for the electronic components industry. The Council is made up of 10 Distributors, 10 Manufacturers and 1 Manufacturer’s Representative.

The SCC Introductory Presentation provides a more detailed overview of the SCC.
