Counterfeit Part Test Lab Proficiency Evaluation

Counterfeit part (CP) Test Lab proficiency evaluations to assure that CP Test Labs are capable and continually improving their ability to detect and manage counterfeit parts in the supply chain

Background and Opportunity

Test laboratories serve as a crucial defense against counterfeit and substandard parts infiltrating the electronic industry and supply chain. Past assessments of these facilities have revealed a notable occurrence of both false positives and false negatives in test results. Proficiency evaluations have been effective in identifying labs that are meeting standards and those that require enhancements, suggesting that a more structured approach to assessing lab proficiency and personnel could greatly enhance efforts to safeguard the microelectronics supply chain.
