In this paper the organisation of reliability compliance testing of electronic components in Poland is discussed. The aim of the testing is to find the reliability of the components to both producer and user and hence to establish reliability for the two parties. The system described is derived from standard methods and has two aims. These are:-1) To enable periodical checks of production to be made.2) To estimate the reliability level of the components produced.Sampling plans are constructed on the basis of Weibull distributions. Individual life tests are performed to compare the reliability levels with those in the specification, and also to enable data to be accumulated for calculation of average failure rates. These tests are supervised by the quality centre UNITRA-ELECTRON. The centre is then in a position to provide reliability data on electronic components for the designers and producers of electronic equipment.The system of reliability compliance testing given in the paper will be effective if the tests are performed frequently. The aim is also to achieve results in the shortest possible time. In order to achieve these aims accelerated life testing has been investigated.Applicability of techniques, including that of accelerated life testing, to the study of reliability of polyester capacitors is examined.
