Counterfeit Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical (EEE) Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition
This standard is for use by organizations that procure and/or integrate and/or repair EEE parts and/or assemblies containing such items, including maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) organizations. The requirements of this standard are generic and intended to be applied/flowed down, as applicable, through the supply chain, to all organizations that procure EEE parts and/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. The requirements of this document are intended to be used in conjunction with a higher-level quality standard (e.g., AS/EN/JISQ9100, ISO-9001, ANSI/ASQC E4, ASME NQA-1, AS9120, AS9003, and ISO/TS 16949 or equivalent) and other quality management system documents.
