This Instruction:

Reissues reference (a) to implements policy, assign responsibilities, and prescribe procedures for joint Department of Defense (DoD)/Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear weapon life-cycle activities.

Implements references (b) and (c) as they apply to joint DoD-DOE nuclear weapon life-cycle activities, and reference (d) as it applies to the refurbishment guidelines issued by the Nuclear Weapons Council.

This Instruction:

Applies to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), the Military Departments, the Chairman of the Joint Staff, the Combatant Commands, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, the Defense Agencies, and DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities within the Department of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as "the DoD Components").

Provides procedures for all joint DoD-DOE nuclear weapons development, production, sustainment, and retirement activities (including studies). For the purpose of this Instruction, the meaning of "sustainment" is strictly as defined in enclosure 2.

Establishes and provides for the ongoing responsibilities and procedures of duly constituted Project Officer Groups (POGs) throughout the stockpile life of their associated nuclear weapons.

Does not provide procedures for routine stockpile activities (defined in enclosure 2). Such procedures are the responsibility of the Cognizant Military Departments and the DOE. However, if routine stockpile activities result in generation of a requirement for a previously unscheduled joint DoD-DOE change to a weapon, or changes to its Military Characteristics (MCs) or Stockpile-to-Target-Sequence (STS), the resulting activity shall be considered a sustainment activity and DoD actions shall be performed in accordance with the procedures provided in this Instruction.
