Abstract:

A program was conducted to draft a NAVAIRSYSCOM Hazardous Material Safety Instruction, to review major specifications requiring identification of hazardous materials in weapon systems and to study the NAVAIRSYSCOM procurement system to determine at which point a code may be assigned to identify hazardous materials. Documents applicable to hazardous materials including SD-24, MIL-D-8706BAS, MIL-F-7179E and MIL-R-81294A were assembled and reviewed. Visits were made to ASO Aviation Supply Office to further examine procurement procedures and to FMSO Fleet Materials Support Office to determine the functions of CHIL Consolidated Hazardous Items List and how it can be used in the hazardous material program. A current list of documents relating to hazardous materials was prepared, a definition of hazardous materials was written and a proposed NAVAIRSYSCOM Naval Air Systems Command hazardous materials safety instruction was drafted.
