Sep 2023: High-risk or Counterfeit Parts Report
September 2023 Edition:
Briocean Quality Assurance Centre

High-risk or Counterfeit Parts Report


At Briocean Technology, we prioritize providing top-quality electronic components to our clients. We have established two advanced Quality Control Centres in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, spanning 1,000 square meters, and equipped with over 60 sets of inspection equipment and over 50 professional engineers. Aside from being an ERAI member, our Quality Control Centres are also internationally recognised, meeting IDEA, ISO 17025 and ISO 9001:2015 standards. Our management system covers all inspection processes, from warehousing to electrical testing, ensuring compliance with international standards.
Part of our quality assurance efforts is also managing our own suppliers’ sources as it is crucial to have a well-structured Supplier Management System (SMS) in place. Briocean has built a professional and systematic SMS to evaluate the reliability of our suppliers, to carry out comprehensive, scientific, and dynamic regular assessment on the suppliers’ delivery, quality, and stability.


The Supplier Management System (SMS) includes internal approval of supplier (supplier identification), certification management process, category classification, rating administration, periodic grading review and dynamic management.
In this section, to provide the latest market intelligence on high-risk or counterfeit parts, Briocean QA Centre has consolidated a report comprising of the intercepted parts from the Tier 1 and Tier 2 inspections. This report covers the month of September 2023 and subsequent reports will be published monthly.

Tier 1 Inspection Intercepted Parts List

Tier 1 inspection refers to the first verification process of checking the labels and packaging by comparing the shipment labels with the original label in the Briocean label database.

Tier 2 inspection refers to visual and marking inspection using the LEICA microscope with a magnification of up to 160x. This helps to inspect the interior and exterior sides of the component on its dimensions, scratches, polishing, breakage, or oxidation on the BGA.
Visual & marking inspection is the most effective in intercepting counterfeit parts.
