Since the original passage of Section 818 in the 2012 NDAA we have all been on the counterfeit mitigation/avoidance roller coaster. First the law was passed and we awaited the first DFARS. Finally, the first DFARS case was open for public comment and industry provided a large amount of feedback and suggestions regarding how the DFARS could affect industry. Next we waited with anticipation to see what the result would be.

ERAI Counterfeit Photo Library

Damir Akhoundov
10/09/2015

Over a year ago, ERAI compiled a library of photographs and a search engine to enable Members to locate images of specific part non-conformances specified from a list of categories from our Nonconformance Photo Library. We then then further enhanced this search by providing a set of filters enabling Members to narrow down searches to include images of specific part numbers or parts from a specific manufacturer. We have received great Member feedback and based on Member requests and reviews, we have now improved this feature by adding the capability to create slideshow presentations based on search criteria from the Nonconformance Photo Library in order to provide our Members with a powerful and educational training and presentation tool.
