Counterfeit


Counterfeit Materiel* has been described by the MOD as materiel whose origin, age, composition, configuration, certification status or other characteristic (including whether or not the materiel has been used previously) has been falsely represented by:

  • misleading marking of the materiel, labelling or packaging;
  • misleading documentation; or
  • any other means, including failing to disclose information;

 

Except where it has been demonstrated that the misinterpretation was not the result of dishonesty by a supplier or sub-supplier within the supply chain.

*Materiel refers to all equipment, parts, components, products, raw material or software associated with the deliverable product or service.
