Counterfeit (EEE) Part Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation and Disposition

Century is committed to preventing the receipt of counterfeit material and has a history of customer compliance through comprehensive quality assurance processes.

As part of this commitment, we follow strict quality requirements per the Aerospace AS5553 & AS6081 Standards and utilize a checklist to monitor the process.

  • Parts must be from the original equipment manufacturer or a franchised distributor.
  • Parts must be in the original manufacturer’s packaging with lot traceability to the certification supplied with the material.
  • If parts have sealed packaging they are not removed for detailed part inspection.
  • If parts are not in sealed packaging a visual inspection is performed using 3X magnification to check for any relabeling or part alterations.
