NDAA 2017 to further amend S818 of NDAA2012

The House approved S.2943, National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017. S.2943 includes language to further amend the original counterfeit part legislation by eliminating use of the term ‘trusted supplier‘.

A copy of the conference report is available here.

Excerpts appear below…

Amendments related to detection and avoidance of counterfeit electronic parts (sec. 815)

The House amendment contained a provision (sec. 806) that would modify section 818 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112-81) by replacing the term “trusted suppliers” with the term “suppliers that meet anticounterfeiting requirements”, as well as related conforming amendments. This provision would clear up confusion about the term, which refers to the specific category of microelectronics supplies that have been accredited by the Defense Microelectronics Activity.

The Senate bill contained no similar provision.

The Senate recedes.
