Counterfeit measures

31 March 2008.

In a continuous effort to minimize the impact of counterfeit of electronic components in our industry, founder and CEO of Canics, Inc., Steve Herscheid, will be attending the first ERAI (Electronic Resellers Association International) 2008 Electronic Industry Supply Chain Conference in Las Vegas May 1st and 2nd, 2008.
The workshops are aimed at further educating industry professionals with regards to counterfeit and high-risk part mitigation as well as the latest visual inspection programs and techniques used industry wide and other related issues.
I will meet with other industry professionals, government officials and enforcement agencies that are addressing these issues.
At Canics this mitigation by means of 100%inspection is already part of our daily business and the workshops will only help us counter this adverse market. Canics currently uses an approved vendor list however, even the best vendor (even known distribution channels) are affected by this plague. The use of best practices and prevention are the best medicine.
