SMT not only complies with the following standards, we helped create them.


This SAE standard is for use by organizations that procure and/or integrate electronic parts and/or assemblies containing such items. The requirements of this standard are generic and intended to be applied/flowed down through the supply chain to all organizations that procure electronic parts and/or assemblies, regardless of type, size and product provided. The mitigation of fraudulent/counterfeit EEE parts in this standard is risk-based and will vary depending on the desired performance or reliability of the equipment/hardware.


SMT's component inspection process complies with IDEA-STD-1010-B, a detailed component inspection process published by the Independent Distributors of Electronics Association.  It is cited in other standards such as SAE AS5553A.  SMT helped develop this standard and provided a substantial amount of example photographs and other included material.
