DoD Holding Meeting on Counterfeit Electronic Parts Rule

The Department of Defense is hosting a public meeting to obtain the views of experts and interested parties in government and the private sector regarding further implementation of the requirement for detection and avoidance of counterfeit electronic parts.

The meeting will be held on June 16, 2014, from 8:30 12:30 p.m., EDT, at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Headquarters Auditorium, 300 E Street SW., Washington, DC, 20546.

Earlier this week, DoD finalized its rule in DFARS Case 2012-D055, Detection and Avoidance of Counterfeit Electronic Parts. The rule partially implements Section 818 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (PL 112-81) to prescribe policy and procedures for preventing counterfeit electronic parts and suspect counterfeit electronic parts from entering DoD’s supply chain.

DoD states in its meeting notice that is particularly interested in recommendations for further implementation of the requirements of Section 818.

Individuals wishing to attend the meeting should register by June 9, 2014, via the Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy web site.
