WARRENDALE, PA -- AS5553A, a new standard for counterfeit electronics parts avoidance and detection, is in the final phases of review by the SAE Aerospace Council and should be released in January, the SAE G19 Committee said.

The proposed document is intended for use in aviation, space, defense, and other high performance/reliability electronic equipment applications. The standard is recommended for use by all contracting organizations that procure electronic parts, whether such parts are procured directly or integrated into electronics assemblies or equipment. The requirements of this standard are generic and intended to be applied/flowed down to all organizations that procure electronic parts, regardless of type, size, and product provided.

The standard was created in response to a significant and increasing volume of counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain, posing significant performance, reliability, and safety risks. This standard was created to provide uniform requirements, practices and methods to mitigate the risks of receiving and installing counterfeit electronic parts.
