In an effort to improve and continually produce safe and reliable products, Golden West Technology is now certified per the IEC/TC 62239-1 Specifications for Part 1: Preparation and maintenance of an Electronic Component Management Plan (ECMP) – Process Management for Avionics. At the heart of the plan is the SAE AS5553 Rev. A – Aerospace Standard for Fraudulent/Counterfeit Electronics Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation and Disposition. This standard was created in response to the growing concern of increasing volume of counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain. In addition to adopting the overall plan, GWT has implemented the proper procedures and practices to address procurement, inspection, risk mitigation and acceptable public reporting of counterfeit components.
