4 Introduction to Suspect/Counterfeit Items At the completion of this training, you will be able to:Identify Suspect/Counterfeit Items and where they may be discovered, including:Contractor equipment (cranes, slings, aerial lifts, below the hook lifting devices, etc.)Supplied or purchased materialList the Brookhaven requirements for employees, contractors, and suppliers concerning Suspect/Counterfeit Items.Identify potential consequences from having Suspect/Counterfeit parts in the workplace.Fulfill your role in the Suspect/Counterfeit Items program.Proceed as required once a Suspect/Counterfeit Item is found, including:Required Reporting Actions and Engineering Evaluation
5 What is a Suspect or Counterfeit Item? Suspect Items: A suspect item is one in which there is an indication by visual inspection, testing, or other information that it may not conform to established Government- or industry-accepted specifications or national consensus standards.Counterfeit Items: A counterfeit item is a suspect item that is a copy or substitute without legal right or authority to do so or one whose material, performance, or characteristics are knowingly misrepresented by the vendor, supplier, distributor, or manufacturer.The Five Suspect/Counterfeit Items Categories are:Piping and piping components (including mechanical and metal products)Electrical/electronic componentsFasteners (e.g. Grade 5 and 8 bolts)Hoisting and Rigging (material handling) componentsDocumentation and Certification
6 Potential Consequences of Having Suspect/Counterfeit Items in the Workplace Suspect/Counterfeit Items can:Cause an unsafe condition that puts people at risk of injury or deathCause a spill or release to the environmentCause extensive damage to equipmentCause delays that impact project schedules and cost:Equipment can’t be used until concern is resolvedReporting requirements to the Dept. of Energy (DOE)Engineering evaluation may need to be performedMaterial containing Suspect/Counterfeit Items must be segregated and cannot be returned to the supplier/subcontractor.
7 The Five Categories of Suspect/ Counterfeit Items Category 1 – PipingCategory 2 – ElectricalCategory 3 – Bolts/FastenersCategory 4 – Hoisting and Rigging/Material HandlingCategory 5 – Documentation and CertificationThe following slides show examples of Suspect/Counterfeit Items in each category.
8 Counterfeit Valve – WATTS Ball Valves The “½ PSI” pressure marking is incorrect for the valve on the left (this is a 1/2 inch size valve generally used in fluid control.)The valve on the right is a gas ball valve with the correct markings.Additional counterfeit information includes extra approval markings (e.g. FM and AGA); as illustrated on the left.WATTS gas ball valves are only approved by UL and CSA.Comparison between two ½” Forged CSA Ball Gas ValvesLeft – CounterfeitRight – GoodConflicting information ½ psi – 608 WOGFM – Factory Mutual markingCounterfeit Valve
9 Category 2- Electrical Example Suspect General Electric Molded Case Circuit Breakers – Refurbished, Sold as NewLabel printed with both “General Electric” and “GE” markings -Manufacturer stopped marking with both indicators over 20 years ago.New breakers should now only be marked with “GE”Also, look for worn labels as sign of refurbished breakers.
10 Category 3 - Fasteners Example Ratchet Tie-down without StrapBolt in ratchet is a Grade 8 with no manufacturer’s marking.Manufacturer’s mark is required.For more information, go to Dept. of Energy Suspect/Counterfeit Defective Items website:
11 Fastener Headmark List Known markings that indicateSuspect/Counterfeit FastenersClick here for a Fastener Headmark Card.
12 Category 4 - Hoisting and Rigging Example ShackleNo manufacturer markings. “China” is marked; however, this is unacceptable as Dept. of Energy standards require the manufacturer’s name or trademark.(DOE-STD-1090)
13 Category 5 –Documentation and Certification Example Counterfeit CertificateCertified Material Test Reports -Look for data/information that isduplicated but should be unique.For example:Specification numbers are the same on multiple certificatesHeat numbers are the sameLook for data/numbers that donot add up correctly. Forexample:Total of chemical alloys should be between %. This Report total is 164%.
14 What is Your Responsibility if a Suspect/ Counterfeit Item is Found: If you Discover a Suspect/Counterfeit Item, You Must:Stop using the equipment that contains the Suspect/ Counterfeit Item.2. Make sure that the Suspect/Counterfeit Items Coordinator is notified. If you don’t know who the Suspect/Counterfeit Items Coordinator is, contact:For Brookhaven Employees: contact your ES&H Coordinator or Quality Representative who will then notify the Suspect/Counterfeit Items Coordinator.For Contractors/Suppliers: contact your Brookhaven Point of Contact, who will then notify the Suspect/Counterfeit Items Coordinator.
15 SummaryYour Role in Suspect/Counterfeit Items program is to prevent Suspect/Counterfeit Items from being used at BNL.Be aware of the potential for suspect/counterfeit items and the five categories where they can occur.Look for the identifiers that indicate the potential for a suspect or counterfeit part or item.You are required to stop using the equipment and notify appropriate personnel when a suspect/counterfeit item is found.
