|Publication Date:||26 February 2020|
This regulation assigns responsibilities and prescribes policies for the Army's type classification (TC), materiel release (MR), materiel fielding, and materiel transfer processes. The TC process ensures that materiel is acceptable for Army use prior to spending procurement funds at the Full-Rate Production (FRP) Decision Review. The MR process ensures that Army materiel is safe, suitable, and supportable. The materiel fielding and transfer processes ensure the orderly and effective deployment and transfer of Army equipment, including all necessary logistics support requirements.
