DCMA Details Oversight of Counterfeit Electronic Parts

August 4, 2015

On July 6, 2015, DCMA issued Instruction 1205 that provides the framework the government will use to assess compliance with DFARS 252.246-7007 (May 2014), which requires certain contractors to design and deploy systems to avoid and detect counterfeit electronic parts. The instruction assigns roles and responsibilities for DCMA functions, establishes a risk-based approach that will drive the types of oversight and surveillance contractors can generally expect, and details the reporting that may occur if counterfeit materials or suspected counterfeit materials are identified.
