Miraco, being aware of the potential risks associated with using counterfeit Electrical, Electronic
and Electromechanical (EEE) parts, has established a Standard Operating Procedure to reasonably
ensure that all EEE parts are authentic, that is, genuinely manufactured by or for the designated
Manufacturer of said part.
All parts purchased, used on, and/or used to build customer product shall be authentic, OEM product or tooling, and shall be sourced in a way to reasonably ensure this. Records of traceability shall be submitted to Miraco by its suppliers to verify authenticity. If this is not possible, Miraco will take reasonable steps to independently verify authenticity.
Miraco has a 3 tier purchasing methodology which is used to purchase EEE parts. Strict adherence to this method is the best way to ensure that all EEE parts are as specified, and therefore authentic. This consists of:
Any parts suspected to be fraudulent, shall be reported to at least one of the following agencies:
Communication between the above agency(s) and Miraco shall be documented and save with the
incoming inspection report.
Suppliers of EEE components or assemblies/sub‐assemblies shall be required to follow similar guidelines to ensure only authentic parts are sourced and used on Miraco product. Suppliers shall provide Miraco with supporting documentation from Franchised Distribution or the Manufacturer to support this. Any exceptions must be authorized by Miraco Management, in
writing prior to receipt at Miraco. Failure to obtain authorization will be immediate grounds for
refusal/rejection of the product.
Following ‘Common Sense’ purchasing methods, and due diligence in the inspection and documentation of EEE parts will reasonably reduce or eliminate the introduction of counterfeit parts to the manufacturing process. It is Miraco’s intention that zero counterfeit parts are ever received, let alone used to manufacture goods, and we will take any and all steps necessary to ensure this. Any questions pertaining to the Miraco EEE parts policy may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
