Latest AS9100 standard brings counterfeit part control to aerospace manufacturing

Christopher Paris
11/17/2016

The aerospace standards AS9100, AS9110 and AS9120 aim to establish minimum baselines for quality management systems for manufacturers, repair stations and stockist distributors, respectively. Companies are then audited against those standards in order to achieve “certification” by an accredited third party registrar; this certification can open access to contracts available from government agencies, OEMs and aerospace primes.

In November 2007, the G-19 Counterfeit Electronic Components Committee was chartered by SAE Aerospace to develop the first industry standard to specifically address the threat of counterfeit electronic components in the aeronautic, space, defense, civil and commercial electronic supply chains. The committee was tasked with documenting recognized best practices in component management, supplier management, procurement, inspection, test/evaluation methods and response strategies when suspect or confirmed counterfeit components are detected.

The Standards Development Process

Anne-Liese Heinichen
03/11/2016

As many of you know, ERAI staff is involved in the industry standards development process, specifically through SAE International. As a whole, SAE standards are developed to “ensure the safety, quality, and effectiveness of products and services”. While many of these standards tend to focus on aerospace, automotive, defense and other critical sectors, most are drafted to encompass general processes throughout multiple industries on an international level. Many are designed with a specific focus on an activity (e.g. distribution, manufacturing, integration) and material (e.g. EEE parts, counterfeit part mitigation).

It has been well established that fraudulent, suspect counterfeit and counterfeit parts have no value and pose a serious threat to all sectors of the supply chain. As such, these types of parts must be controlled, quarantined and ultimately eliminated. However, compliance is sometimes easier said than done despite instructions to do so coming directly from the United States Government and a leading standards development organization.
