Mini-Circuits recognizes the need to prevent counterfeit (CF) parts from being used in our products and has implemented a documented policy via our ISO 9001 / AS 9100 systems consistent with the AS5553 standard as follows:

  • Maximize availability of authentic parts throughout product lifecycle (anticipate and manage obsolescence).
  • Establish preference to buy from OEMs or authorized distributors
  • Specify contract/PO quality requirements
  • Detect CF parts through incoming inspection
  • Detect, verify, control CF parts after initial inspection
  • Control suspected or confirmed CF parts to prevent re-entry into supply chain
  • Report CF parts to customers and other authorities
