Making a safe business environment for the electronic supply chain
We are members of ERAI because we share their vision : “to make the global electronic supply chain a safe business environment through industry cooperation, education, data sharing and promotion of best business practices.” You can verify Auckland International’s ERAI membership by clicking here.
ERAI provide us with tools, information and risk assessment data to manage and reduce the risk of counterfeit and non-conforming components and using problematic suppliers. Our use of their services is part of our commitment to providing a Quality Assured service to our clients.
ERAI was founded in 1995, and we have been members since 1998. It is global and has no geographic restrictions on membership. It links together companies from over 40 countries spanning six continents. It monitors, investigates and reports issues affecting the electronics components supply chain world-wide. Among their suite of risk assessment tools is the world’s largest database of suspect counterfeit and nonconforming electronic parts. This helps us to mitigate risks in our procurement process when dealing with end-of-life or obsolete parts.
ERAI also stays up to date with industry trends and evolving counterfeiter tactics. They share this knowledge and expertise through their website, training and networking. Before 2007 it was known as the Electronic Resellers Association International.
