DoD Tightens Counterfeit Prevention Policy

May 2, 2013

On April 26, 2013, DoD issued an Instruction to establish policies to prevent the introduction of counterfeit material at any level of the DoD supply chain and to seek restitution for critical failures and damages caused by such material. DoD component heads are tasked with integrating the policy into contract requirements and procedures, procuring critical material only from suppliers that meet appropriate counterfeit avoidance criteria or applying additional risk management measures when such suppliers are not available, using sampling techniques and material testing for detection, and reporting all suspected or confirmed occurrences.
