MODUK - DEF STAN 05-135
Avoidance of Counterfeit Materiel
|Publication Date:||14 July 2019|
This Defence Standard defines the arrangements that a supplier is required to establish to demonstrate that they are actively planning and managing the risk of counterfeit materiel in their organisation and supply chain to prevent delivery of such materiel to the MOD.
This Defence Standard may be applied to all materiel procured by the MOD.
Note: The MOD shall consider the inclusion of this standard in contracts where the AQAP 2100 series are invoked (see 3.1 below). Where there are appropriate Sector Schemes or Standards for the avoidance of counterfeit materiel in the supply chain they may be invoked in the supply chain as an alternative to this Defence Standard.
