Minimizing risk within your supply chain, in relation to obsolescence and counterfeit components has become increasingly complex due to the consolidation of the semi-conductor industry as well as the expansion of the federal regulations to no longer allow “trusted suppliers”. The recent DFARS 252.246.7008, released in August 2016, has given some guidance, however has also brought up as many questions as it attempted to answer.
Join us for a unique one hour roundtable panel discussion with perspectives from all aspects of the supply chain including DoD primes, contract manufacturing, independent distributors, and legal perspectives to discuss the impact of the DFARS on such topics as:
•The three tier supply chain model for sourcing electronic components
•Compliance to the DFAR regarding Inspection, Test, and Authentication (IT&A)
•Alternatives to redesign approaches with regards to improved sustainability
•Corporate flow down, liability, and business risk
If your organization is currently faced with obsolescence and counterfeit detection and avoidance challenges, and are unaware of the recent DFARS announcement, or need help interpreting it, please join IEC Electronics and our team of experts to learn more about how this latest release could impact you and your organization.
