Counterfeit, fraudulent and non-conforming components and products in the electrical and electronic systems supply chain is now a fact of life that affects all companies, probably whether they know it not, and the nature of the threat is changing, with a wide range of old and new technologies being counterfeited and supplied from a wide range of sources.
ESCO manages a free-to-access online resource signposting the most relevant information and the latest developments to combat the threat for all organisations concerned about counterfeit electronics.
