ANAB provides voluntary accreditation of laboratories performing detection of suspect/counterfeit parts to the requirements of AS6171, Test Methods Standard.

Laboratories must meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025, AS6171, and AS6171 slash sheets.

The purpose of AS6171 is to standardize practices to detect suspect counterfeit electronic parts and to ensure consistency of test techniques and requirements across the supply chain.

Laboratories seeking accreditation for this program must demonstrate the capability to work under conditions of low relative humidity as outlined in Appendix B of AS6171.
