Suspect-Counterfeit and Defective Items (S/CI-DI) Homepage

DOE is committed to ensuring that items and components installed in safety-related or mission-critical applications meet their intended function and operability requirements. The Office of Health, Safety and Security has established a process to identify SCIs or DIs that are deemed safety-significant and broadly applicable to DOE facilities. This page contains useful information to help identify S/CIs and DIs.
