2. CODIFICATION PROCEDURES:

2.3. SEQUENCE OF CODIFICATION ACTIONS:

2.3.5. FOLLOW-ON ACTIONS

An IoS may be subject to modification, change or correction, by the manufacturer during production, or at the request of the end user during production processing, or after field experience. Such modifications must be evaluated by the Configuration Manager to ascertain whether the modification or change is such as to warrant the creation of a new IoS with a different NSN.

It should be noted that the Codification Contract Clause (see Chapter 4) specifically caters to this requirement throughout the life of the contract. However, it should be acknowledged that use of an IoS may extend beyond the contract's time limit. As a result, the obligations of the original contract should be borne in mind and financial provisions made. Any Sub-Contracted Components or additional components added to a piece of equipment should be treated in the exact same manner.
