(b) supplier agrees and shall ensure that Counterfeit Work is not delivered to IP. (c) supplier shall only purchase products to be delivered or incorporated as Work to IP directly from the Original Component Manufacturer (OCM)/Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), or through an OCM/OEM authorized distributor chain.

(d) supplier shall immediately notify IP with the pertinent facts if supplier becomes aware or suspects that it has furnished Counterfeit Work. When requested by IP, supplier shall provide OCM/OEM documentation that authenticates traceability of the affected items to the applicable OCM/OEM. (e) In the event that Work delivered under this Contract constitutes or includes Counterfeit Work, supplier shall, at its expense, promptly replace such Counterfeit Work with genuine Work conforming to the requirements of this Contract. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Contract, supplier shall be liable for all costs relating to the removal and replacement of Counterfeit Work, including without limitation IP's costs of removing Counterfeit Work, of reinserting replacement Work and of any testing necessitated by the reinstallation of Work after Counterfeit Work has been exchanged.
