                                                                               WARNING 


DO NOT rely on 3rd Party testing facilities/organizations in place of Counterfeit Component Avoidance Training.   Several companies have fallen prey to this process in their attempts to save money; only to find out many components passed the required 3rd party testing but upon closer examination it was found out the parts were actually USED components pulled from discarded circuit cards.  The Department of Defense and their accepted standard SAE AS5553 states USED components are classified as Counterfeit and are not allowed in DoD equipment.  3rd Party testing is for testing, their process is for a pass/fail result, not for an overall Counterfeit Component Avoidance result.  Proper Training is critical for a COMPLETE counterfeit component avoidance process. 3rd party testing is important and it will give you a pass/fail result, but basic 3rd party testing will not give you the answer if the part is used and a pull. The interesting fact is  most used/pulled components will pass the customers basic required testing, the down and dirty way to prevent Counterfeit Component Avoidance training.  With that said, the Department of Defense's counterfeit component avoidance approved standard SAE AS5553/paragraph 3.1.1 mentions avoidance training is required for all who handle/process grey market components purchased from non-authorized distributors.  Learn how to  detect and avoid counterfeit components using detailed inspection methodology offered by ProSkill CTG.  All avoidance training Programs are based on SAE AS5553, SAE AS6081, SAE AS6171 and SAE AS6462.
