DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 81 FR 17055 on March 25, 2016, to implement section 885(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 (Pub. L. 114-92). Section 818(c)(2)(B) of the NDAA for FY 2012, as amended by section 885(a), provides that the costs of counterfeit electronic parts or suspect counterfeit electronic parts and the cost of rework or corrective action that may be required to remedy the use or inclusion of such parts are not allowable unless — - The covered contractor has an operational system to detect and avoid counterfeit electronic parts and suspect counterfeit electronic parts that had been reviewed and approved by DoD; - The counterfeit electronic parts or suspect counterfeit electronic parts were provided to the covered contractor as Government property in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) part 45, or were obtained by the contractor in accordance with the regulations described in paragraph (c)(3) of section 818 of the NDAA for FY 2012, as amended; - The contractor discovers the counterfeit electronic parts or suspect counterfeit electronic parts and provides timely (i.e., within 60 days after the contractor becomes aware) notice to the Government, pursuant to section 818(c)(4).

SD-18 "Parts Requirements and Application Guide" provides guidance when using military and commercial parts in military environments. It provides part acquisition guidelines for Program Managers, System Program Offices, and Original Equipment Manufacturers. SD-18 provides guidance on how the Department of Defense and its contractors can cooperatively select devices that will result in the lowest cost of ownership for the DoD. This was prompted by the many changes during acquisition reform in the 1990s. -- The use of commercial parts and documents has increased in today's military system applications. Because the parts are not as fully characterized as the traditional military parts have been in the past, the design implications of using these parts are not well understood. Commercial parts, often have advantages in cost, size, weight, performance and availability, have attracted widespread attention for government and military applications. It is critical that we do not jeopardize performance of our weapons systems when selecting commercial parts. This guide can help in the selection of these devices. This document is sponsored by the Defense Standardization Program Office. About ten years ago SD-18 evolved from a now canceled NAVSEA "Parts Requirements and Application Manual" TE000-AB-GTP-010 document. SD-18 is a web based only document as part of the paperless document approach.
The Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) is recognized as a founder and driving force behind the development and implementation of physics-of-failure (PoF) approaches to reliability, as well as a world leader in accelerated testing, electronic parts selection and management, and supply-chain management. CALCE is at the forefront of international standards development for critical electronic systems, having chaired the development of several reliability and part selection standards. CALCE is staffed by over 100 faculty, staff, and students and in 1999 became the first academic research facility in the world to be ISO 9001 certified. Collectively, CALCE researchers have authored over 35 internationally acclaimed textbooks and well over 1000 research publications relevant to electronics reliability. Over the last 15 years, CALCE has invested over $75 million in developing methodologies, models, and tools that address the design, manufacture, analysis, and management of electronic systems.
The G-12 Solid State Devices Committee develops solutions to technical problems in the application, standardization, and reliability of solid state devices. This is implemented by evaluation and preparation of recommendations for specifications, standards, and other documents, both government and industry, to assure that solid state devices are suitable for their intended purposes.
The G-19 Counterfeit Electronic Components Committee is chartered to address aspects of preventing, detecting, responding to and counteracting the threat of counterfeit electronic components.
The G-21 Counterfeit Materiel Committee is chartered to address aspects of preventing, detecting, responding to and counteracting the threat of counterfeit material. The objective of the SAE G-21 committee is to develop standards suitable for use in high performance/high reliability applications to mitigate the risks of counterfeit materiel. In this regard, the standard will document recognized best practices in materiel management, supplier management, procurement, inspection, test/evaluation methods and response strategies when suspect or confirmed counterfeit materiel is detected.
The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) is the voice of the U.S. semiconductor industry, one of America's top export industries and a key driver of America’s economic strength, national security, and global competitiveness. Semiconductors – microchips that control all modern electronics – enable the systems and products we use to work, communicate, travel, entertain, harness energy, treat illness, and make new scientific discoveries. The semiconductor industry directly employs nearly a quarter of a million people in the U.S. In 2014, U.S. semiconductor company sales totaled $173 billion, and semiconductors make the global trillion dollar electronics industry possible. SIA seeks to strengthen U.S. leadership of semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research by working with Congress, the Administration and other key industry stakeholders to encourage policies and regulations that fuel innovation, propel business and drive international competition.

This rule proposes to amend the cost principle at DFARS 231.205-71 to incorporate the new provisions of section 885(a) of the NDAA for FY 2016
This rule requires DoD contractors and subcontractors, except in limited circumstances, acquire electronic parts from trusted suppliers in order to further address the avoidance of counterfeit electronic parts. DoD contractors and subcontractors that are not the original component manufacturer are required by this rule to notify the contracting officer if it is not possible to obtain an electronic part from a trusted supplier. For those instances where the contractor obtains electronic parts from sources other than a trusted supplier, the contractor is responsible for inspection, test, and authentication in accordance with existing applicable industry standards. -- This rule enhances DoD's ability to strengthen the integrity of the process for acquisition of electronic parts and benefits both the Government and contractors. The careful selection of suppliers and the inspection, testing, and authentication of electronic parts that are not traceable to the original manufacturer are consistent with industry risk-based processes and are steps that a prudent contractor should take notwithstanding this rule. The avoidance of the proliferation of counterfeit electronic parts in the DoD supply chain reduces the risk of critical failure of fielded systems such as aircraft, ships, and other weapon systems, thus protecting troops' lives and safety.

Within the microelectronics industry, the problem of counterfeit components continues to rise as product supply chains become more and more diverse. Devices that are obsolete, or those which are predestined to be, are at a high risk for counterfeiting. Additionally, the added application of RoHS standards has increased the risk of producing counterfeit lead-free devices. This is mainly due to manufacturers' transition to environmentally compliant components.- The cost and risk of manufacturers unknowingly using counterfeit devices vindicates preventative screening measures like those enacted by SMT. Our state-of-the-art facility enables us to execute a variety of non-destructive testing procedures allowing for safe analysis of components, as well as ensuring that these components will remain intact for use in the field. For more in-depth analysis, SMT utilizes decapsulation and other destructive testing for a deeper examination of a component; these processes often give us the freedom to search for potential issues at the microscopic level.
