Abstract : The Navy disposes of tons of hazardous material as hazardous waste due to the expiration of excessively conservative shelf-life terms. In order to reduce this occurrence, the Navy has started an effort to challenge shelf-life terms assigned to hazardous material currently in the supply system. Fifty-five commodities were selected based on the amount of material disposed of as hazardous waste due to their shelf-life terms. This report documents the results of this study.... Hazardous materials, Shelf-life term (SLT), Shelf-life action codes (SLAC).
