DOD Publishes DARS Rule on Counterfeit Electronics

Today the Department of Defense published a Defense Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DARS) final rule in the Federal Register (79 FR 26091-26108) implementing new rules concerning the prevention of the use of counterfeit electronics in DOD acquisition projects. This is the rule that I mentioned last week.

This rule addresses DOD contractor requirements for:

• Detecting and avoiding the use or inclusion of counterfeit electronic parts or suspect counterfeit electronic parts;
• The use of trusted suppliers; and
• Reporting counterfeit electronic parts and suspect counterfeit electronic parts.

The effective date of the rule is today.
