Overview of Recent Developments in Voluntary Consensus Standards for Counterfeit Parts – NASA-NSC

In recent years, the awareness of counterfeit parts has increased, with reports of counterfeits discovered in high-reliability systems, critical life support and process control equipment. This has focused the spotlight on suspect counterfeit part detection methods, supply-chain management and the ability of laboratory techniques to uncover suspect parts that might be produced using sophisticated counterfeit creation methods.

On May 9 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern, join Dr. Bhanu Sood, commodity risk assessment engineer at Goddard Space Flight Center, for the webinar “Overview of Recent Developments in Voluntary Consensus Standards for Counterfeit Parts.”

Sood will provide an introduction to the landscape of standards associated with the supply chain, training, accreditation and laboratory techniques used for detecting suspect counterfeit parts. Sood will also discuss the latest industry standards for laboratory testing, which standardize practices to detect suspect counterfeit parts and ensure consistency across the supply chain for test techniques and requirements.
