Counterfeit Parts Mitigation

Global Test Equipment makes every effort to ensure that only authentic new and used materials are installed in Goods delivered to Buyer and that the Goods delivered do not contain counterfeit parts. No material, part, or component other than authentic new or used parts shall be installed unless approved in advance in writing by the Buyer. To further mitigate the possibility of the inadvertent use of counterfeit parts, Seller shall only purchase authentic parts/components directly from the Original Component Manufacturers (OCM), Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) through an OCM/OEM authorized distribution chain or distributors and sellers who can identify the legitimacy of the components, assemblies, or equipment. Seller must make available to Buyer, at Buyer’s request, documentation that authenticates traceability of the components to that applicable OCM. Purchase of parts/components or equipment from independent vendors is acceptable providing the legitimacy of the components, assemblies or equipment can be verified. If component or equipment cannot be authenticated through visual identification and testing of the items, or OEM verification, approval of the procurement of parts must first be communicated in writing by Buyer authorizing such purchase. Seller must present complete and compelling support for its request and include in its request all actions to ensure the parts/components thus procured are legitimate parts. Parts having the same functions, quality and tolerances that match or exceed the original part which authenticity and legitimacy can be determined and traced are acceptable substitutes. These exceptions are mostly associated with obsolete parts and materials which are no longer manufactured or supported by the OEM, but the identified replacements components are either equal to or superior in quality. Buyer’s approval of Seller request does not relieve Seller’s responsibility to comply with all requirements under this policy, including the representations and warranties in this paragraph. For avoidance of doubt “counterfeit part” shall mean an unverified copy or imitation, or substitute that has been identified, marked, and/or altered by a source other than the item’s legally authorized source and has been misrepresented to be an authorized item of the legally authorized source.
