2. CODIFICATION PROCEDURES:

2.1. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS:

2.1.1. INTRODUCTION

Logisticians in NATO and Sponsored user nations require that NATO Codification be undertaken for all Items of Supply prior to delivery to the user. A comprehensive series of actions is undertaken to achieve this end. These actions are detailed in this Chapter.

It is essential that arrangements be made for codification at the earliest possible stage in a project to ensure that codification data is provided in step with the production of Items of Supply. Whenever possible, the requirement shall be noted at the design stage and contractors encouraged to use Standard Components and Items of Supply which have already been codified and fully described.
