It's important to us that if you are going to take time out of your busy schedules you should benefit from that time spent with us. This event will specifically include:

  • An overview of NQA and benefits of certification 
  • Counterfeit and obsolescence
  • Counterfeit prevention planning
  • Risk management processes
  • Requirements of the standard - what they actually cover - ie. not just electronics

We will give you some guidance on what methods you could use to manage and demonstrate you have a robust counterfeit prevention system.
