L2 - New DoD Protections Against Counterfeit Parts: Is Your Company Ready?

August 8, 2013 • Webinar

The Department of Defense has begun to implement statutory provisions requiring sweeping new protections against counterfeit parts. These changes will increase the risk and cost to participation in the DoD supply chain. Is your company ready?

In response to requirements in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act that DoD mitigate the risk posed to its supply chain by counterfeit parts, DoD has issued guidance, instructions and, most recently, proposed regulations. All of these actions impose new requirements on contractors that will increase the cost and risk of participation in the DoD supply chain. And while the application of the proposed regulations is limited to a subset of prime contractors, the limitation is largely illusory as the new requirements for counterfeit parts mitigation systems will be flowed down to all levels of the DoD supply chain.

By fully understanding these new requirements and getting out ahead of DoD’s initiatives, companies can position themselves to minimize the cost and disruption posed by these new requirements. In short, if you supply parts, particularly electronic parts, to DoD as a prime contractor or a subcontractor, this  90-minute webinar will provide you with the tools to address this significant compliance shift.

Adelicia Cliffe, Richard Arnholt and Grant Book are the presenters at this event.
