Joint Regulation Governing the Use and Application of Uniform Source, Maintenance, and Recoverability Codes
|Publication Date:||29 August 2020|
This regulation establishes uniform Source, Maintenance, and Recoverability (SMR) codes for all Department of Defense (DoD) Services and participating agencies (PAs) and prescribes policy and interprets guidelines for the initial assignment, changes to, and application of these codes. The SMR code provides maintenance activities with repair-level responsibilities, support method (that is, procure, manufacture, et cetera.), and disposition instructions. This publication reflects the changes in terminology required by the performance specification, SAE International Logistics Product Data Standard-0007. Uniform SMR codes will be used by all DoD Services and PAs. Subject to the Service options contained herein, each Service and PA will ensure that the coding structure and application of these codes are used by their logistics management systems in order to provide uniformity and a means of inter-Service and PA communication of information for multi-Service and PA equipment. Services and PAs are not required to use every SMR code contained herein. However, only codes contained herein will be used when SMR codes are assigned. A table of approved SMR codes for all Services and PAs is located in appendix B.
