Counterfeit Electronic Parts has emerged as a significant product integrity risk to DOD weapon systems. Industry and U.S. government studies conducted over the past decade shows that electronic parts counterfeiting continues to expand. In 2012, U.S. public law required DOD to establish policies to address the counterfeit electronic parts threat. In 2014, DOD established new regulations requiring contractors to establish and implement a Counterfeit Electronic Part Detection and Avoidance System.
