New JEDEC Standard Sets Best Practices for Mitigating Counterfeit Electronic Parts

ARLINGTON, Va., USA –  JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, the global leader in standards development for the microelectronics industry, today announced the publication of JESD243: Counterfeit Electronic Parts: Non-Proliferation for Manufacturers.  This standard identifies the best commercial practices for mitigating and/or avoiding counterfeit products of the following types: monolithic microcircuits, hybrid microcircuits and discrete semiconductor products. JESD243 is available for  free download from the JEDEC website.

JESD243 applies to all manufacturers of electronic parts including, but not limited to, original component manufacturers (OCMs), authorized aftermarket manufacturers, and other companies that manufacture electronic parts under their own logo, name, or trademark.  The document defines standard requirements for developing both a mitigation policy and a product return policy, including return verification and a prohibition on the restocking of confirmed counterfeit parts.

“The proliferation of counterfeit electronic parts throughout the supply chain has significant financial and safety implications for industry, governments, manufacturers and consumers,” said John Kelly, JEDEC President.  He added, “JEDEC is pleased to offer JESD243 as a resource to manufacturers as they seek to stem the tide of counterfeit parts.”


JEDEC is the global leader in the development of standards for the microelectronics industry. Thousands of volunteers representing nearly 300 member companies work together in 50 JEDEC committees to meet the needs of every segment of the industry, manufacturers and consumers alike. The publications and standards generated by JEDEC committees are accepted throughout the world.  All JEDEC standards are available for free download from the JEDEC website.
