NAVY - SECNAV M-5210.2
Standard Subject Identification Code (SSIC) Manual
|Publication Date:||29 August 2018|
This manual delineates the process for segregating and filing Navy and Marine Corps records and provides the standard system of numbers used throughout the DON to categorize and classify Navy and Marine Corps records. An SSIC is required on all DON records including, but not limited to, letters, messages, directives, forms, and reports/information collections. Only approved SSICs will be assigned; however, expansion of the system for filing purposes is authorized following the procedures contained in Part 3 of this manual.
A significant and ever increasing portion of the Department's records are created, used, and/or stored electronically. The requirement to assign an SSIC applies to any record regardless of its format and medium.
This manual is to be used in conjunction with reference (b). Reference (b) describes specific DON records and provides disposition schedules for them.
