AS5553 Standard

In response to the increasing volume of counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain, SAE has created the AS5553 standard.The document presents solutions to address the issue of counterfeit electronic parts and standardizes requirements, practices and methods for risk mitigation.

SAE has also developed a one day seminar, “Introduction to AS5553 and Counterfeit Electronic Parts Avoidance Training” to introduce participants to the standard and to provide information and training in addressing this important issue.
