As trade barriers decrease, opportunities have been created for companies to enter the Electrical Equipment marketplace. This has led some manufacturers to copy, mimic or rebuild other better known Electrical Equipment manufacturers' products. Too often, this leads to sacrificing quality to increase profit. This sacrifice can directly jeopardize a facilities electrical system, process availability, or even a person's life and well being.

If approved, this paper and presentation would look at the quality issues already discovered; steps the utility system integrator, panelbuilder, consultant and process equipment manufacturer can take to mitigate these risks; and action that the leading manufacturers are taking with the Department of Commerce to eliminate the problem.
