2014.05.13 Final DFARS Rule: The Department of Defense published a proposed rule on May 16, 2013, entitled “Detection and Avoidance of Counterfeit Electronic Parts”. The rule addressed contractor responsibilities for detecting and avoiding the use or inclusion of counterfeit electronic parts or suspect counterfeit electronic parts, the use of trusted suppliers, and requirements for contractors to report these parts. Following the publication, private-sector firms, industry associations, and government agencies made recommendations and these were carefully considered in preparing the final rule. The much anticipated final rule amending the DFARS was issued last week and became effective on May 6th, 2014. This week, join our host, Stan Salot and his guest, Robert S. Metzger of Rogers Joseph O'Donnell, P.C., as they discuss the implications of this rule to the industry and those committed to counterfeit mitigation. read more »

US-MB, ECCC Services:

Supplier’s declaration of conformity, under IECQ supervision, is an essential element of IECQ. When properly utilized, IECQ can:

  1. Provide stronger assurance that electronic components, related materials and processes, as well as solar photovoltaic home systems and components, meet the conformity requirements of a buyer-seller specification
  2. Effect important and continuing cost savings for customers and suppliers
  3. Become an effective tool for improved market penetration and enhanced customer satisfaction
  4. Help build bottom-line profitability with minimal investment. In short, IECQ can provide the strength that binds long-term customer-supplier relationships.
