Astute Electronics to present seminar on detecting counterfeit electronics at DSEI 2017

Astute to present Counterfeit Mitigation for Defence Primes in the Global Theatre at 14:30, Wednesday, September 13.

Astute Electronics Ltd, franchised global distributor and procurement specialist, has been chosen to deliver a seminar at DSEI 2017, the world’s leading event for the global defence and security sector.

Astute’s Global Business Manager, Mark Shanley, will be presenting Counterfeit Electronics Mitigation and Detection for Defence Primes at 14.30, September 13, in the DSEI Global Theatre.

He will discuss how best practices and quality standards which have been developed to prevent counterfeits entering the supply chain have evolved to keep up with the growing demands of global production and sourcing and managing obsolescence, as well as describing the value of expert partners and authorised distribution.

“It’s an honour to deliver this important seminar at DSEI. The rising danger of counterfeit components is a real and very serious problem, especially against the prevailing market conditions where supply chains are compromised and challenged,” said Mark. “As part of the Ministry of Defence’s Counterfeit Avoidance Working Group (CAWG), we can share what best practice looks like.

Mark continues: “With a volatile electronics market place, the chances of suspect parts entering the supply chain have risen drastically: can you ensure you have no weaknesses in your supply chain? If there are gaps, then find out how to secure these at the seminar.”

This session is suitable for anybody tasked with addressing the issue of counterfeit electronic parts including supply chain managers, procurement officers, component engineers, procurement policy makers and anybody involved in de-risking the supply chain.   

Astute is a highly-accredited electronics distributor and procurement specialist to the world’s leading defence suppliers. As a member of the Counterfeit Avoidance Working Group (CAWG), Astute has played a leading role in defining and updating the MoD’s Defence Standard 05-135, accompanied by the Counterfeit Avoidance Maturity Model, that defines how a supplier is managing the risk of counterfeit material entering the MoD’s supply chain.

Counterfeit Mitigation for Defence Primes will take place at 14:30, September 13, Global Theatre, DSEI, Excel Centre, London.
