Counterfeit and rogue industrial parts and materials are a worldwide problem that can put workers and public safety at risk. Undetected counterfeit and rogue items may cause electrical or mechanical failure that may lead to death, personnel injury, or property damage. Although statistics are available for the fatalities caused by counterfeit alcoholic beverages, baby foods and medicine, there is no statistical data available for the impact of counterfeit and rogue parts and materials on the industry. This paper provides some examples of actual incidents in the industry in order to demonstrate the seriousness of the problem. The paper also provides some guidance on what the petrochemical industry can do to mitigate the risk.
