[ Updated 8 Oct to reflect feedback re the 30 Sep version ]

Here is an update to the standards gap analysis I have been maintaining. It now includes …

  • ISO/IEC 20243:2015 – Information Technology — Open Trusted Technology ProviderTM Standard (O-TTPS) — Mitigating maliciously tainted and counterfeit products
  • AS6886, Counterfeit Materiel; Assuring Acquisition and Use of Authentic and Conforming Refrigerant
  • Proposed, ARP6328 Guideline for Development of Counterfeit Electronic Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition Systems
  • MIL-STD-3018 Department of Defense Standard Practice, Parts Management

    Nice work on standards gap analysis. Thank you.

    Under the ISO/IEC section, there is some emerging work of use from JTC1/SC27. Specifically ISO/IEC 20243 is directly addressing controls to mitigate risk of tainted and counterfeit electronic parts. In reality, ISO 20243 is the Open Trusted Technology Provider Standard (O-TTPS) also referenced under you BSI entry. ISO/IEC 27034 is addressing risks related to verification, and ISO/IEC 27036 is addressing procurement.

    I believe including these ISO/IEC standards adds value because some of the OCM and COTS suppliers are influenced more by ISO/IEC than most of the other standards bodies your gap analysis is tracking.

    • David,

      Thanks for you kind feedback.

      I updated the gap analysis to include ISO 20243, released 15 Sep 2015. The link within the post above points to the update.

      My observation is that this new standard includes very high level, nonspecific “counterfeit mitigation” practices. It does not include comprehensive counterfeit detection and avoidance practices.
