This document standardizes practices to detect suspect counterfeit electronic parts, to maximize the use of authentic parts, and to ensure consistency across the supply-chain for test techniques and requirements. Shares the same intent as AS5553 but is applicable to the testing/inspection community.


This standard was created in response to a significant and increasing volume of fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain, posing significant performance, reliability, and safety risks. This standard was created to provide uniform requirements, practices and methods to mitigate the risks of purchasing and supplying fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts.

This SAE Aerospace Standard standardizes practices to:

a. identify reliable sources to procure parts,
b. assess and mitigate risk of distributing fraudulent/counterfeit parts,
c. control suspect or confirmed fraudulent/counterfeit parts,
d. and report suspect and confirmed fraudulent/counterfeit parts to other potential users and authority having jurisdiction.

Aerospace Industries Association (AIA)

The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), founded in 1919 only a few years after the birth of flight, is the premier trade association representing major aerospace and defense manufacturers and suppliers in the United States.
