Development Team The World Electronic Circuits Council (WECC) is a strategic partnership formed in 1998 by the major industry associations serving member companies in the global electronic circuits industry.

Its purpose is to increase the global influence and effectiveness of its member organizations for the benefit and improvement of the industry.
The member associations cooperate on standards, market research, marketing, resource development, environmental issues, world trade, and economic and political affairs.
The member organizations of WECC formed a working group in 2005 to pool their statistical resources and produce a global statistical report on printed circuit board (PCB) production for the benefit of their members. This group became the WECC Statistics and Market Committee.
