Thursday, June 30, 2022
8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
College Park Marriott, Hyattsville, MD
For More Information:
Diganta Das


Counterfeit parts have found their way into every sector of industry, from consumer electronics and appliances to safety-critical areas including avionics, medical devices, and military systems. The SAE AS6171 family of standards was developed by the G-19A Test Laboratory Standards Development Committee to provide a risk-based testing methodology for counterfeit detection. As both a comprehensive testing standard and a methodology for risk-based testing, AS6171 serves a pivotal role within any counterfeit prevention strategy.  It continues to undergo revision and expansion to include new test methods and to address evolving threats such as tampering.

Course Description:

This full-day course will provide a thorough introduction to the requirements and use of the SAE AS6171 Test Methods Standard for Suspect/Counterfeit Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical (EEE) Parts. It will cover the General Requirements document, the Test Evaluation method, and the ten published test methods.

To close out the course, a brief overview will be given of new test methods currently under development by the G-19A committee that is intended for release in the near future, including methods that address tampering.


Dr. Michael H. Azarian, Research Scientist, Mechanical Engineering Center for Advanced Lifecycle Engineering, University of Maryland College Park. Please contact him for more information on the workshop content.
