AS6171 Accreditation for Suspect Counterfeit Aerospace Parts
What is AS6171 Accreditation for Suspect Counterfeit Aerospace Parts?
ANAB provides accreditation of laboratories performing detection of suspect/counterfeit aerospace parts to the requirements of AS6171, Test Methods Standard.
The purpose of AS6171 is to standardize practices to detect suspect counterfeit electrical, electronic, and electromechanical (EEE) parts and to ensure consistency of test techniques and requirements across the supply chain. The assessment detailed in the SAE AS6171 standard determines the types of defects detected using a specified test plan so the lab can provide a certificate of conformance to the end user.
Laboratories seeking accreditation for this program must demonstrate the capability to work under conditions of low relative humidity as outlined in Appendix B of AS6171.
