scope:

This document outlines standard processes for the development and documentation of military packaging, as distinct from commercial packaging. This standard covers methods of preservation to protect materiel against environmentally induced corrosion and deterioration, physical and mechanical damage, and other forms of degradation during storage, multiple handling, and shipment associated with the military distribution system. A decision chart is included for developing these packaging requirements (see figure 1).

For purposes of this standard, military distribution system is defined as the process(es) by which materiel, not intended for immediate use, is stored or moved within or between DoD facilities.

The requirements of this standard apply to:

a. Items expected to enter the military distribution system

b. Items delivered during wartime

c. Items requiring reusable containers

d. Items intended for delivery-at-sea

Items not going into the military distribution system are to be packaged in accordance with commercial practice. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

a. Items intended for immediate use

b. Items for not-mission-capable supply

c. Items intended for depot operational consumption

d. Small parcel shipments (CONUS), not-for-stock

e. Direct vendor deliveries (CONUS)
