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.

Supply Chain Risk Management Reliability Standards

A Proposed Rule by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission …

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) proposes to approve supply chain risk management Reliability Standards CIP-013-1 (Cyber Security – Supply Chain Risk Management), CIP-005-6 (Cyber Security – Electronic Security Perimeter(s)) and CIP-010-3 (Cyber Security – Configuration Change Management and Vulnerability Assessments). The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), the Commission-certified Electric Reliability Organization, submitted the proposed Reliability Standards for Commission approval in response to a Commission directive. In addition, the Commission proposes that NERC develop and submit certain modifications to the supply chain risk management Reliability Standards.
