The ASCDI and its membership have developed and adopted a program to prevent an influx of counterfeit equipment in the technology supply chain.  This on-going program is a partnership between the ASCDI, governmental organizations and manufacturers.

This is a collection of presentations and other information obtained by the ASCDI to inform the public and its members about issues pertaining to counterfeit.  It is part of our on-going effort to protect buyers and sellers of technology equipment from acquiring  non-authentic equipment.
