DOD adopts SAE’s AS5553 standard on counterfeit electronic parts

The SAE International G-19 Committee created SAE AS5553–Counterfeit Electronic Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition to standardize requirements, practices, and methods related to counterfeit parts risk mitigation.

The U.S. Department of Defense recently has adopted AS5553–Counterfeit Electronic Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition. SAE International had issued the standard earlier this year. In response to an increasing volume of counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain, SAE in 2007 created the G-19 Committee to develop a document standardizing requirements, practices, and methods related to counterfeit parts risk mitigation. The resulting product presents solutions in addressing counterfeit electronic parts issues across a large cross section of the electronics industry by requiring those who adopt it to develop and implement a counterfeit electronic parts control plan. The control plan includes processes to specifically address counterfeit part risk mitigation methods in electronic design and parts management, supplier management, procurement, part verification, material control, and response strategies when suspect or confirmed counterfeit parts are discovered.
