Applicability. The provisions of this instruction apply to all DON organizations and personnel involved in initiatives that may result in the disclosure of CMI or CUI to foreign governments and international organizations, or their representatives or persons sponsored by them (hereinafter referred to as foreign representatives). DON activities shall ensure these provisions are imposed on contractors through the security requirements of each contract. This instruction applies to disclosures at any location and any form; i.e., in oral, visual, or material form (e.g., releases of documentary information or hardware). In the event of a perceived conflict between this instruction and other DON policies or procedures, relevant disclosure issues will be held in abeyance until the Navy International Programs Office (Navy IPO) resolves the policy conflict.

It includes the eight categories of information described in reference (d).
