Boeing has developed the Counterfeit Parts Control Plan (CPCP) that acknowledges electronic parts suppliers for their exemplary performance in quality and counterfeit components avoidance. The program provides requirements, practices, and methods for mitigating risks of receiving counterfeit parts. Each approved supplier must prove its requirements for a counterfeit risk mitigation control plan, and have the plan apply to all levels of procurement. This is not only for electronic parts but for all associated materials.
Each approved supplier must have a risk mitigation process that includes methods for avoidance, detection, mitigation, and disposition. In addition, the supplier must have a documented process for purchasing, reporting of counterfeit electronic parts, purchased product verification, in-process inspection, and material control.
