processing, storage, and shipment of materiel.
2. Equipment that has been removed from storage for shipment does not have to be reprocessed if
they will reach their destination within the administrative storage period. Reprocess only if
inspection reveals any corrosion or if anticipated in-transit weather conditions make it necessary.
3. When a piece of equipment is received and has already been processed for domestic shipment,
as indicated on DD Form 1397, it does not have to be reprocessed for storage unless corrosion
and deterioration are found during the inspection upon receipt. List on SF Form 364 all
discrepancies found because of poor preservation, packaging, packing, marking, handling,
loading, storage, or excessive preservation. Repairs that cannot be handled by the receiving unit
must have tags attached listing needed repairs. A report of these conditions will be submitted by
the unit commander for action by an ordnance maintenance unit.
