On August 30, 2016, the DoD issued a final rule amending the DFARS to
implement §885(a) of the FY 2016 NDAA, which expands the safe harbor for
allowability of costs of counterfeit or suspect counterfeit electronic
parts and any related rework or corrective action.
The National Law Review, Patrick Stanton

(“DoD”) in recent years. In no area is this more true than ensuring
that Government systems and equipment are free from counterfeit
electronic parts, which can raise both security and defect concerns.
