Since the mid 1950s, when the first commercial selective plating specification was introduced, the number of specifications has surpassed 100. The following list includes some of the more important industrial, government, and military specifications:

MIL-STD-865C (U.S. Air Force) MIL-STD-2197SH (U.S. Navy)

• MPS 1118A (Lockheed Aircraft)

• SS 8413, 8494 (Sikorksy Aircraft)

• BPSFW 4312 (Bell Helicopter)

• FPS 1046 (General Dynamics)

• HA 0109-018 (North American Rockwell)

• Standard Practice Manual 70-45-03 and T.M. No. 72-191 (General Electric)

• Report NAEC-AML 1617 (Naval Air Engineering Center, Philadelphia)

• M-967-80 (Association of American Railroads)

• AC 43.13-1A, Chg. 1 (Federal Aviation Administration)

In addition to the above specifications, many U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force activities have generated instructions for selective plating of specific hardware or components at specific military facilities.

In the electronics field, the repair of printed circuit boards for military applications is authorized by MIL-STD-865C. For commercial applications, the Institute for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits approves the use of selective plating for repair of both bare and assembled printed circuit boards (Ref 5). In addition, many electronics companies have issued their own specifications for in-house repair of circuit boards and other electronic components.
