While counterfeiting has increased in the electronics industry, you can rest assured that ICC's parts are genuine.


You Can Count on Genuine Products from ICC...


At Interstate Connecting Components, we take counterfeit part prevention and detection seriously.


While mil-spec and high-reliability interconnects are not often counterfeited, counterfeit and poor quality high-volume commercial interconnects are on the rise. In fact, untraceable surplus connectors can be easily reintroduced to the supply chain -- usually with fraudulent paperwork or markings.


ICC took measures to combat these threats a long time ago. We implemented strict counterfeit product prevention and awareness processes that comply with the AS5553 Standard for Counterfeit Electronic Parts: Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition. All ICC purchasing, inspection, and receiving staff are thoroughly trained and audited on these procedures.


Here's why you can trust us:  

  • ICC is government-authorized and approved under the Qualified Products List (QPL) to assemble and sell 100% of the OEM mil-spec connectors offered through our T'Da - Two-Day Assembly™ program.
  • ICC is an authorized distributor -- buying directly from the OEM -- for over 90% of the remaining products we supply.
  • ICC requires our suppliers, whether manufacturer or distributor, to furnish manufacturer certifications or certificates of conformance for all product lots. These certifications must be traceable back to verification records.
  • ICC maintains lot traceability throughout the product lifecycle, from receipt of goods through shipment.
  • ICC participates in GIDEP (Government Industry Data Exchange Program) and ERAI (Electronic Resellers Association International). Both resources provide up-to-the-minute reporting of counterfeit part incidents.
  • ICC is certified to AS9100C -- so not only are our suppliers required to furnish us with applicable quality records on demand -- but as a valued customer, you have access to this information as well.

Because of our stringent anti-counterfeit procedures and extensive staff training, you can be confident that you will receive only genuine products from ICC.
