The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 introduces new requirements to strengthen protections against counterfeit electronic parts coming into the defense supply system. The legislation is a response to a US Senate Armed Services Committee investigation that found more than 1,800 instances of counterfeit electronic parts in the defense supply chain. Section 818 of the FY2012 NDAA embraces concepts to which many industry and US government subject matter experts subscribe and addresses many of the long-time impediments to addressing the challenge of counterfeit electronics in the defense supply chain. There are elements of Section 818, however, that will prove to be a challenge for defense contractors.
