Minimizing risk within your supply chain, in relation to obsolescence and counterfeit components has become increasingly complex due to the consolidation of the semi-conductor industry as well as the expansion of the federal regulations to no longer allow “trusted suppliers”. The recent DFARS 252.246.7008, released in August 2016, has given some guidance, however has also brought up as many questions as it attempted to answer.

Join us for a unique one hour roundtable panel discussion with perspectives from all aspects of the supply chain including DoD primes, contract manufacturing, independent distributors, and legal perspectives to discuss the impact of the DFARS on such topics as:
