We achieve this goal by utilizing thorough vendor management and inspection processes to ensure component and supply chain integrity.

RC Electronics evaluates and selects vendors based on their ability to supply product in accordance with RC Electronics quality standards. Criteria for selection, evaluation, and re-evaluation have been established. Records of the results of evaluations and any necessary corrective actions arising from the evaluations are maintained in order to prevent the purchase of counterfeit, suspect, and/or unapproved products.

Counterfeit Prevention

Counterfeiting of electronic components can refer to a variety of activities. It could be as simple as re-marking scrapped or stolen and possibly nonworking parts, or as complex as illegally manufacturing complete parts from original molds or designs. A counterfeit part may be relabeled and appear to come from a different manufacturer or to appear to be a newer or older but more sought-after component than it actually is. Visually, it's usually hard to tell the counterfeit part from the real thing. The most insidious and most prevalent kinds of counterfeits are either sold as legitimate brand-name goods or become components in otherwise legitimate products. Counterfeiters often go to great lengths to duplicate materials, part numbers, and serial numbers so that their wares match those of authentic products. But the problem isn't just with counterfeit parts, defective or outdated products get circulated as well. Some parts made by branded manufacturers are deemed either defective or substandard and are destined for the scrap yard. But they never make it there: They're stolen, re-marked, repackaged and resold. Other components simply expire and are slated for scrap but instead are sold as excess.

RC Electronics understands how big of a problem this really is and how much time and money is wasted by counterfeit products. This is why we have put multiple procedures in place to prevent counterfeit products from reaching our end customers. Through intensive training and participation in industry associations fighting counterfeiting, RC Electronics has stayed at the forefront of anti-counterfeiting technology. As we all know, this problem is not going to go away, but employing intensive screening methods, we can reduce the impact on the supply chain.
