AS9100D and Counterfeit Parts Prevention

Shortly before the release of SAE International Standard AS5553 in April of 2009, a number of us within the aerospace and defense community discussed the need to incorporate requirements for detection and avoidance of counterfeit parts into key Quality Management System (QMS) standards.

AS9100 (revision D released earlier this month) now includes a section on “Prevention of Counterfeit Parts”. It is my hope that incorporating counterfeit avoidance and detection requirements into key high level QMS standards, such as AS9100D, will drive more consistent expectations and implementation across DOD’s supplier base.
