SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

DoD is interested in opening a dialogue with experts and interested parties in Government and the private sector about further implementation of the requirements for detection and avoidance of counterfeit electronic parts in DoD contracts. As partial implementation of the requirements at section 818, entitled “Detection and Avoidance of Counterfeit Electronic Parts,” of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Pub.

DoD also held a public meeting on June 28, 2013, to discuss the proposed rule under DFARS Case 2012-D055. DoD is preparing to publish a final rule under that case.

DoD is now considering further implementation of section 818. DoD is particularly interested in further implementation of the requirements of section 818(c)(3), Trusted Suppliers.
