ANSI: Preventing counterfeit electrical aerospace parts

Electronics counterfeit mitigation

“Almost anything can be counterfeited. While our minds might typically gravitate toward fake watches sold on street corners by dubious characters, counterfeiting spans the expanse of industries,” writes the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) here. “And its negative effects can go far beyond getting burned by overpaying for a flimsy accessory. In the case of the aerospace industry, counterfeit parts can compromise entire systems and even threaten lives.”

With this and related factors in mind, SAE AS 5553D-2022: Counterfeit Electrical, Electronic, And Electromechanical (EEE) Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, And Disposition was created and is periodically revised.

SAE AS 5553D-2022 helps to avoid, detect, mitigate, and dispose of counterfeit parts by standardizing practices and methods related to EEE parts management, supplier management, procurement, inspection, test/evaluation, and response strategies.

Several SAE standards address the detection and avoidance of counterfeit electronic parts, and their guidance assists users in meeting this need. Notably, SAE AS 6081 sets a management system for distributors to avoid, detect, mitigate, and dispose of electronic parts. To demonstrate compliance with this standard, some Astute Electronics has gained certification to SAE AS6081.

Astute is a highly accredited, quality-driven procurement expert, with a list of clients that includes the world’s leading defence suppliers. Our mission is to shield you against inferior quality products and services. As such, our operations are run in accordance with quality processes including AS6081 that mitigates the risks of purchasing and supplying fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts.

The bespoke Astute Counterfeit Avoidance Programme (ACAP) is market-leading in its process and offers a secure, warranted route for these occasions. For parts obtained through non-traceable routes, Astute will subject products to rigorous destructive and non-destructive testing through their ACAP scheme, encompassing the AS6081 anti-counterfeit standards.
