Counterfeit Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical (EEE) Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition
This standard is for use by organizations that procure and integrate EEE parts. These organizations may provide EEE parts that are not integrated into assemblies (e.g., spares and/or repair EEE parts). Examples of such organizations include, but are not limited to: original equipment manufacturers; contract assembly manufacturers; maintenance, repair, and overhaul organizations; value-added resellers; and suppliers that provide EEE parts or assemblies as part of a service. The requirements of this standard are generic. These requirements are intended to be applied (or flowed down as applicable) through the supply chain to all organizations that procure EEE parts and/or systems, subsystems, or assemblies, regardless of type, size, and product provided. The mitigation of counterfeit EEE parts in this standard is risk-based and these mitigation steps will vary depending on the criticality of the application, desired performance and reliability of the equipment/hardware.
