Counterfeit electronic parts continue to proliferate and increase globally each year. All elements of the supply chain are negatively affected and in many cases, have severely impacted the reputation and financial stability of many businesses. At the same time, the overall awareness and impact of counterfeit parts issues continues to grow. This has resulted in individuals and organizations linking themselves together to address these issues. The SAE International G-19 Committee was formed in September 2007 with members from government and industry sectors. Together, they developed and released AS5553, a standard to mitigate the risks of counterfeit electronic parts in the supply chain. It was developed for OEM use and incorporates flow-down requirements. Both NASA and DoD have adopted it. However, as no one organization or sector of the supply chain can completely solve the problem, the committee identified additional areas within the supply chain where standardization is required. This presentation will highlight key, proven methods of addressing counterfeit electronic parts issues. It will also provide the progress of the G-19 Committee’s strategic vision of what still needs to be done within the supply chain and will outline the progress of efforts to assist in winning the counterfeit parts war.

This Webinar lecture featured 45 minutes of lecture followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
