This situation is potentially hazardous for the entire aerospace community, DOD and maintainers of electrical wiring interconnect systems.
Many of these counterfeits bear the M22520 Mil-Spec number, DMC logo, DMC part numbers, DMC CAGE code (11851) and appear almost identical to genuine DMC qualified products as listed on the Qualified Products Database (QPD) and Qualified Products List (QPL).
These products are COUNTERFEIT and not approved or qualified under MIL DTL 22520 and other specifications that apply. GIDEP Safe-Alert F9Y-S-17-01A and F9Y-S-17-02A have been issued to alert industry of the fraudulent misrepresentations.
