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 material List 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
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: 1.Piping and piping components (including mechanical and metal products) 2.Electrical/electronic components 3.Fasteners (e.g. Grade 5 and 8 bolts) 4.Hoisting and Rigging (material handling) components 5.Documentation and Certification
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 death Cause a spill or release to the environment Cause extensive damage to equipment Cause delays that impact project schedules and cost: Equipment cant be used until concern is resolved Reporting requirements to the Dept. of Energy (DOE) Engineering evaluation may need to be performed Material containing Suspect/Counterfeit Items must be segregated and cannot be returned to the supplier/subcontractor.
The Five Categories of Suspect/ Counterfeit Items Category 1 – Piping Category 2 – Electrical Category 3 – Bolts/Fasteners Category 4 – Hoisting and Rigging/Material Handling Category 5 – Documentation and Certification The following slides show examples of Suspect/Counterfeit Items in each category.
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. Counterfeit Valve Comparison between two ½ Forged CSA Ball Gas Valves Left – Counterfeit Right – Good Conflicting information ½ psi – 608 WOG FM – Factory Mutual marking
Label 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. Suspect General Electric Molded Case Circuit Breakers – Refurbished, Sold as New Category 2- Electrical Example
Category 3 - Fasteners Example Ratchet Tie-down without Strap Bolt in ratchet is a Grade 8 with no manufacturers marking. Manufacturers mark is required. For more information, go to Dept. of Energy Suspect/Counterfeit Defective Items website:
Fastener Headmark List Known markings that indicate Suspect/Counterfeit Fasteners Click here for a Fastener Headmark Card. Fastener Headmark Card.
Category 4 - Hoisting and Rigging Example Shackle No manufacturer markings. China is marked; however, this is unacceptable as Dept. of Energy standards require the manufacturers name or trademark. (DOE-STD-1090)
Category 5 – Documentation and Certification Example Counterfeit Certificate Certified Material Test Reports - Look for data/information that is duplicated but should be unique. For example: 1.Specification numbers are the same on multiple certificates 2.Heat numbers are the same Look for data/numbers that do not add up correctly. For example: 3.Total of chemical alloys should be between %. This Report total is 164%.
What is Your Responsibility if a Suspect/ Counterfeit Item is Found: If you Discover a Suspect/Counterfeit Item, You Must: 1.Stop using the equipment that contains the Suspect/ Counterfeit Item. 2. Make sure that the Suspect/Counterfeit Items Coordinator is notified. If you dont 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.
Summary Your 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.
