The purpose of this document is to provide detailed requirements to preclude the use of suspect counterfeit or counterfeit fasteners.
The requirements of this document are intended to supplement the requirements of 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.

This document applies to metallic and non-metallic components that mechanically attach two or more objects: fasteners, screws, bolts, rivets (blind, solid, tubular), inserts, washers, nuts, latching handles, clamps, pins, nails, retainers, etc. If locking or treatment elements such as glue, adhesives, anti-galling, lubricant, or other materials are part of the fastener specifications, then those items are within the scope of this document.
For metallic raw materials used in the manufacturing of fasteners, refer to AS6279.
This document does not apply to connectors such as pneumatic or hydraulic fittings and electrical connectors.
Appendices A, B, C, and D are guidance.
