First, we would like to express our appreciation to your continued business with Japanese electronic component manufacturers.
We have become aware that various counterfeit electronic components have gained broader distribution around the world especially in the East Asian region in recent years. These counterfeit goods have been found outside the official sales channel such as sales office/company or authorized dealers of the original electronic component manufacturers. In addition, these goods were also found on Internet Websites not authorized by the original electronic component manufacturers. Unfortunately, it is difficult for our customers to identify counterfeit goods simply from the appearances.
Most counterfeit goods do not satisfy the quality requirements of each original electronic component manufacturer. Not only may counterfeit goods cause malfunctions to our customers’ end products but may pose serious safety problems, and there is a possibility that our customers may be involved in unintended misconduct.
Therefore, we sincerely request our customers to pay careful attention to counterfeit goods and not to use them under any circumstance.
Please contact sales office/company, authorized dealers or the Internet Website of the original electronic component manufacturers when you purchase electronic components.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
In no event shall Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) or any original electronic component manufacturer assume any responsibility or liability of any kind, including, without limitation, any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or special damages, or any other damages whatsoever, whether or not advised of the possibility of such damage, arising out of or in connection with the use of any counterfeit goods.
We appreciate your continued business with Japanese electronic component manufacturers.
