FAC 2020-02 amends the FAR as follows:

    This final rule amends the FAR to require contractors and 
subcontractors to report to the Government-Industry Data Exchange 
Program (GIDEP) certain counterfeit or suspect counterfeit parts and 
certain major or critical nonconformances. This change implements 
sections 818(c)(4) and (c)(5) of the National Defense Authorization Act

to report counterfeit or suspect counterfeit electronic parts purchased 
by or for DoD to GIDEP. In addition, the FAR Council extended coverage

public comments, this final rule has more limited scope than the 
proposed rule, exempting contracts and subcontracts for commercial 
items and limiting the clause application to acquisitions of items that 
require higher level quality standards, critical items, or electronic 
parts by or for DoD.
