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.
In addition, Century uses some of the best testing equipment on the market.
