Well, it’s been a big month for standards on spotting and eliminating counterfeit material and components from the supply chain, and yep! Here’s another one! AS 6174, “Counterfeit Materiel; Assuring Acquisition of Authentic and Conforming Materiel,” has just been revised. The new Revision A is available from Document Center Inc. in both paper format and for pdf download. It cancels and replaces the original release from 2013.
This Aerospace Standard provides you with a methodology to maximize the availability of authentic material, including procuring material from reliable sources. It discusses methods like certification, traceability, testing and inspection which assure authenticity and conformance of material in your supply chain. It shows you how to control material that you’ve identified as fraudulent or counterfeit. And it provides guidance on how to report such material to other users and to the authorities.
The new Revision A has been generated because a significant error in the standard’s material traceability requirement was discovered. This edition corrects that problem by updating sections 3.1.2.c, 3.1.2.f, and 3.1.6. It also establishes precedence and provision for use of slash sheet documents.
If you need a copy of this new AS 6174 A, you can order your copy at Document Center’s webstore, www.document-center.com.

If you’ve had difficulties in the past with downloading the authorized copies of SAE standards like this one, you’ll be pleased to know that the DRM plugin from FileOpen is no longer being used. So if you need a pdf copy, you’ll be able to purchase and use it easily.
