PURPOSE. This instruction:

Supersedes DLAR 4145.25/AR-700-68/NAVSUPINST 4440.128C/MCO 0330.2C/AFR67-12

Prescribes procedures and responsibilities for the receipt, storage, use, inspection, transportation, and handling of compressed gases and their cylinders for all DoD components, installations and activities. These procedures are designed to assure optimum use of both the gases and the cylinders by all DoD and DLA activities.

APPLICABILITY AND SCOPE. The provisions of this Instruction are applicable to the Department of the Army (DA), the Department of the Air Force, the Department of the Navy, the Marine Corps, and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) which will be referred to collectively as "DoD Components". This instruction applies to all world wide DoD locations that receive, store, issue, use, maintain, recondition, and perform associated services with or on the compressed gases and their cylinders managed by the Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR) and the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP). When there is a conflict between the provisions of this instruction and the host nation, the more stringent requirements shall apply.

Aerosol-type containers currently in the supply system are not considered in this Instruction. When transporting aerosol containers refer to Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Flammable aerosols should be stored as Class 1 flammable liquids as stated in NFPA 30, Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code.

DLAI 4145.25/ AR 700-68/NAVSUPINST 4440.128D/AFJMAN 23-227(I)/MCO 10330.2D has been coordinated with, and approved by, the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.

This Instruction may be supplemented at the major command, installation, and activity levels.
