US officials launch global defense against counterfeit components and their suppliers

With the unveiling of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) this week, the US government made detection and avoidance of counterfeit electronics a global initiative. Both US and non-US suppliers to defense manufactures in the US, with be subject to the Act's regulations and requirements. 

IHS predicts approximately 362 non-US firms, from around the globe, are members of the US government's supply chain and will therefore be impacted by the NDAA.

With over 1,363 legitimate counterfeit cases being reported in 2011, according to IHS, the danger these falsified parts pose to US government's supply chain continues to grow. 

Counterfeit detection and avoidance procedures are more important than ever and should be incorporated into every company's supplier evaluation processes, to ensure only valid and properly functioning parts populate the global supply chain.
