NEDA releases guideline on component returns.

ATLANTA - New guidelines from the National Electronic Distributors Association (nedassoc.org) provide best-in-class processes to ensure product purchased through authorized channels is legitimate.

The member-authored document is said to promote standard practices between manufacturers and distributors, in hopes of improving efficiency, profitability and product quality.

NEDA Guideline on Returns is aimed at slowing the entry of counterfeit parts into the electronics supply chain. It seeks to strengthen the integrity of the supply chain when purchasing through authorized distribution by establishing guidelines for returned material. It suggests controls in the form of policies, inspections and verifications.

NEDA is a not-for-profit trade association representing supplier-authorized distributors of electronic components and their customers. - MB
