A growing number of fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts are entering the supply chain, especially when purchasing parts not from the Original Component Manufacturers (OCMs), or their authorised agents.
The AS6081 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.
The AS6081 standard establishes requirements and practices to mitigate the risk of buying, receiving and selling fraudulent/counterfeit parts therefore giving your customers confidence in their own supply chain.
The standard builds upon your current AS9100 or AS9120 certification and brings in additional requirements to make your management system more robust.
