2.3. SEQUENCE OF CODIFICATION ACTIONS:

2.3.2. REQUESTS FOR CODIFICATION

These requests must contain the following information :

  • The True Manufacturer's/Design Authority's fully identifying part number.

  • The Approved Item Name (AIN) and the Item Name Code (INC) where it is known.

  • The NATO Commercial and Governmental Entity Code -NCAGE- or name and address of the manufacturer.

  • The proposed NATO Supply Class.

The name of the True Manufacturer/Design Authority is essential to the codification process. It is common practice for suppliers to allocate their own part numbers and where "Sub-Contracted Components" are included in equipment the supplier must quote the True Manufacturer/Design Authority's Part Number and provide all relevant data of the IoS for screening and recording in the national database.

Requests for codification are passed either to the appropriate NCB or the nominated co-ordinator of the project. This depends on the decision of the appropriate Sub-Group or the participating nations.
