Process management for avionics - Counterfeit prevention - Part 2: Managing electronic components from non-franchised sources

Organization: NEN
Publication Date: 1 July 2014

ICS Code (Production. Production management): 03.100.50
ICS Code (Electronic components in general): 31.020
ICS Code (Aerospace electric equipment and systems): 49.060
scope:

The avionics industry has a responsibility to ensure that all flight equipment produced has a predicted product life which correlates to the predicted repair and service life to ensure the public is not endangered. Typically an OEM calculates a mean time between failure (MTBF) and possibly a mean time to failure (MTTF) prediction. These calculations assume all components are new, or considered as "unused", at the point of introduction into flight use and that no useful component life and/or any "unsafe" component conditions have been used. This part of IEC 62668, which is a technical specification, defines requirements for avoiding the use of counterfeit, recycled and fraudulent components when these components are purchased outside of franchised distributor networks for use in the aerospace, defence and high performance (ADHP) industries. This practice is used, as derogation, only when there are no reasonable or practical alternatives. Although developed for the ADHP industry, this document may be used by other highperformance and high-reliability industries, at their discretion.
