"I'm just curious to know why no one advocated following up? Fake parts if discovered should be taken seriously."

@Anna: That's because normally after a crash the parts are not in a state to be examined so no one can really tell if the malfunction was because of counterfeit or low quality parts.

 Kayode, I'm sure necessary checks are carried out on aircrafts. However, Occasional you do have a case of odd one slipping through the net. I will assume this to be case in this scenario.

"In the case of the Canadian military aircraft encounter with fake parts, I think the parts should have been traced and dealt with appropriately."

@Anna: I agree. There have been several other incidents like these but unfortunately the cause has not been traced down. If it is really because of counterfeit parts then severe action should be taken.

Hmm, in the case of the military aircraft, its not that counterfeiters built the whole plane and then canada bought it over from them, I mean to say that somebody should atleast be able to identify authentic components or have a reliable source who has a reliable source who has a relaible source that checks and checks before the components are being sold out .

TaimoorZ, It is certainly a critical issue, moreso when it involves lives. In the case of the Canadian military aircraft encounter with fake parts, I think the parts should have been traced and dealt with appropriately. Directly or indirectly incidents of this sort does impact lives negatively. It is a ticking bomb!

"By keeping quiet we assume the problem will go away or that it will not impact us. It's the quiet before the storm that can be most regrettable."

@Bolaji: Indeed. And the issue becomes much more critical when the counterfeit products impact human lives as may be in the case of counterfeit medicines or food products. Nothing is more precious than human lives in my view.

"One small component of an important part of a plane that is fake can cause a serious disaster and that is why counterfeit cannot be allowed to grow out of country."

@Adeniji: I agree. Unfortunately, it's impossible to tell after a plane crash if the malfunctioning in the aircraft was caused due to counterfeit parts. This is one reason why counterfeiters are able to get away.

Well, although here at EBN we focus on electronics, we don't forget to understimate how critical is the matter for goods, in general (including food). I guess in the future a worldwide organization for beating any counterfeit action (it doesn't matter the field) will be setup.
