Counterfeit Part Reporting Trends – Revisited

In the February 2014, I prepared a paper on counterfeit part reporting trends…

 Livingston, H., “Counterfeit Part Reporting Trends Revisited – Observations in anticipation of forthcoming regulations”, February 2014

Below is an updated chart showing the quantity of GIDEP reports (“Alerts” and “Problem Advisories”) published from January 2011 through September 2015 describing counterfeit or suspect counterfeit instances.


Looking at this trend and the data behind it, my personal observations haven’t changed….

  • Many contractors and subcontractors have yet to establish business practices for reporting counterfeit or suspect counterfeit parts.
  • DoD has reported very few counterfeit or suspect counterfeit part findings via GIDEP reports that are accessible to industry.
