The alphabet soup that is part of counterfeit-avoidance is difficult enough; poring through the available standards almost requires a scorecard. The ECIA has done some of the work for the industry in comparing the final rule from the Defense Acquisition Regulations System (DFARS), which added. section 252.246-7007 Contractor Counterfeit Electronic Part Detection and Avoidance System; and the SAE AS6496 Fraudulent/Counterfeit Electronic Parts: Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition - Authorized/Franchised Distribution guideline.
These documents are similar in requirements, according to the ECIA, but there are some gaps between the two. The ECIA Supply Chain Council (SCC) has released a white paper comparing the DFARS and AS6496. This analysis identifies the similarities and the gaps. The gaps identified are around the process for keeping abreast of current anti-counterfeiting information; a process for screening GIDEP--Government-Industry Data Exchange Program--data; and the control of obsolete parts. These issues aren't specifically addressed in both documents.
The white paper is available at http://www.ecianow.org/wp-content/uploads/DFARS-and-AS6496-Comparison-7-20-2015.pdf.
The SAE standard is limited to authorized distribution which it defines as “transactions conducted by a manufacturer-authorized distributor distributing product within the terms of a distribution agreement.” If sales are done without a distribution agreement in place, a different SAE standard applies, AS6081, which applies to independent distributors/brokers.
