This course will cover laws and regulations that require defense contractors and their suppliers to detect and avoid counterfeit electronic parts. We will review DFARS regulations that require “covered” contractors to have systems to detect and avoid counterfeit electronics parts and how requirements flow down to lower tiers of the supply chain. The course will update attendees on important recent changes to DFARS regulation. More companies now are subject to rules on what sources are authorized for electronic parts. New rules establish three “tiers” of permissible sources, reflecting different levels of risks, and new demands accompany use of the moderate- and higher-risk tier. Changes also affect circumstances where contractors who suffer a “counterfeit escape” can recover the costs of replacement and rework. New obligations are stated as concern inspection, testing and authentication, and traceability demands are increased. The course will review how to address the changed rules and where uncertainties remain. Attention will be paid to established and emerging industry standards and best practices and the role that these should have in the selection and qualification of suppliers and in fashioning a compliant program to detect and avoid counterfeit electronic parts. The DFARS sets 12 criteria for systems to detect and avoid counterfeit electronic parts. Each of these will be reviewed to make sure that attendees understand the objectives and are prepared to deal with questions that can arise. The course will discuss how best to configure company policies and procedures to satisfy DCMA business assessment of systems to detect and avoid counterfeit parts. Advice will be given on how to select newly-authorized “contractor-approved suppliers” and on risk-appropriate methods for subcontracting. Attention will be given to practical implementation problems and to lessons learned through experience with the DFARS.
