Further Efforts Of The SIA ACTF To Combat The Flow Of Counterfeit Semiconductors.

Posted By George Karalias on Mar 26, 2014

The SIA’s Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force (ACTF) met with officials from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) last week in Los Angeles. Customs agents were trained on methods for identifying potentially counterfeit shipments and briefed on the health and safety hazards of counterfeit products. The “SIA received positive feedback on a letter sent to CBP in February calling for a joint operation between U.S. Customs and China Customs focused on identifying counterfeit shipments leaving China.  SIA and CBP plan to continue discussions and work toward a potential joint operation over the summer.” As an active member of the SIA and ACTF, Rochester Electronics supports these efforts to prevent counterfeit components from entering the supply chain. The collaboration between the SIA and U.S. Customs to provide training to ports and airports will be a valuable addition to the trafficking of counterfeit semiconductors.
