AS6081 is a sister standard to AS5533. AS5533 was created for organizations that are concerned with, or required to mitigate the risk of counterfeits. AS6081 is for independent distributors who want to avoid counterfeit and want to comply with AS5533.

Important information regarding AS6081:

  • AS6081 is similar to AS5553, but it contains prescriptive counterfeit parts avoidance requirements intended for distributors that purchase from the open market.
  • Requires specific minimum set of Verification of Purchased Product methods
  • AS6081 is not intended to qualify or certify the electronic parts
  • OEMs can specify their suppliers comply or be certified to AS6081 and meet selected flow-down requirements of AS555 
  • AS6081 requirements are intended to be applied down to the organization’s suppliers. Independent, third-party certification bodies will verify and certify an organization’s compliance to AS6081.
