Abstract:

The Department of Defense and the US Navy have existing policies and regulations to ensure that the use of hazardous materials is controlled in the manner which protects human health and the environment at the least cost. Hazardous Material Control and Management HMC and M, implemented under OPNAVINST 4110.2, is a Navy-wide program that requires controlling and managing hazardous materials on a life-cycle basis in order to minimize the generation of hazardous waste. HMC and M actions are required from initial system concept formulation on through the research, development, acquisition, production, operation, and final disposition phases. The overall objective is to increase users perceptions of how to ensure operation readiness while reducing hazards to life, property, and the environment through the application of a rational, systematic methodology to select the least hazardous materials consistent with life cycle cost and operational considerations.
