|Publication Date:||8 April 2015|
PURPOSE. In accordance with the authority in DoD Directive (DoDD) 5134.01 (Reference (a)), this instruction reissues DoD Instruction (DoDI) 3150.09 (Reference (b)) and:
a. Implements policy in accordance with section 1053 of Public Law 108-375 (Reference (c)) and as established in DoDD 5000.01 (Reference (d)), DoDI 5000.02 (Reference (e)), DoDD S-5210.81 (Reference (f)), Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction (CJCSI) 3222.01B (Reference (g)), CJCSI 3170.01H (Reference (h)), DoDD 3020.40 (Reference (i)), and the Manual for the Operation of the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) (Reference (j)).
b. Establishes policy, assigns responsibilities, and establishes procedures for the execution of the DoD CBRN Survivability Policy (including electromagnetic pulse (EMP)).
c. Establishes the policy to identify all mission-critical systems (MCS) and specify the subsets that must survive and operate in chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) environments, nuclear environments, or combined CBRN environments.
d. Describes how CBRN MCS will be identified, reviewed, and considered in the context of Reference(h); the Defense Acquisition System established in References (d) and(e); the Defense Critical Infrastructure Program (DCIP) established in Reference (i); balanced survivability assessments (BSAs) described in DoDI O-3000.08 (Reference (k)); and the Missile Defense Agency Systems Engineering Plan (SEP) (Reference (l)), as appropriate.
e. Requires that CBRN survivability be reported annually.
f. Aligns and coordinates with the mission assurance construct from the DoD Mission Assurance Strategy (Reference (m)) and the DCIP in accordance with Reference (i) to support mission assurance of DoD capabilities and forces.
g. Establishes the CBRN Survivability Oversight Group (CSOG) in accordance with DoDI 5105.18 (Reference (n)) to oversee execution of the DoD CBRN Survivability Policy.
APPLICABILITY. This instruction applies to the OSD, the Military Departments, the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) and the Joint Staff, the Combatant Commands (CCMDs), the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, the Defense Agencies, the DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities within the DoD (referred to collectively in this instruction as the "DoD Components").
