Regulating to fight counterfeiting


Counterfeit components are a potential major problem in any system, but in safety‐critical systems such as aerospace and defense, automotive or medical, they can be a serious hazard to life.


Two of our contributors in this issue examine recent standards and


regulatory moves intended to clamp down on the use of counterfeit components – and look at the ways in which much of the responsibility will be placed on the manufacturers of systems.


Two of the standards developed by the SAE, for the aerospace and


automotive industries, set out methods for the avoidance, detection, mitigation and disposition of fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts in the supply chain. AS6081 applies to independent distributors/brokers and AS6496 applies to authorized distributors. Although these standards will initially impact the automotive and aerospace industries for which they have been developed, it seems inevitable that their effects will be felt more widely in the not‐too‐distant future.


The Department of Defense has also recently introduced rules to


eliminate counterfeit parts from the supply chains that feed into its systems. These rules make contractors responsible for ensuring that no counterfeit components are in their systems. They do not set out how contractors should so this, but contain severe penalties if any such components slip through the net.


These developments clearly will bring new pressures to many stages of


the supply chain. Many companies already have systems in place to ensure that the components they buy are not counterfeit. Those that do not will need to act quickly to ensure they do not fall foul of the new regulations.
