Flashcards in Condition Codes Deck (20)
Serviceable (issuable without qualification). Ammunition in this category is new, used, repaired, or reconditioned and is serviceable for issue to all customers without limitation or restriction.
Serviceable (issuable with qualification). This ammunition is restricted from issue to specific units, activities, or geographical areas because of its limited usefulness and, in some cases, a short service-life expectancy.
Serviceable (priority issue). USAF units place items in this condition code when the item’s service life is within
2 years of the shelf life expiration or when the service life of an item has started
Serviceable (test/modification). Condition code D category items include serviceable material that requires testing, alteration, modification, conversion, or disassembly
Unserviceable (limited restoration). Munitions in the condition code E group include items that involve only limited expense or effort to restore to a serviceable condition.
Unserviceable (repairable). Materials placed in condition code F are considered economically repairable and require repair, overhaul, or reconditioning at higher than the base level.
Unserviceable (incomplete). Condition code G items are unserviceable items, which require additional parts or components to become a complete item prior to issue.
Unserviceable (condemned). Non-hazardous items are placed in this condition code until local demilitarization
or disposal is performed.
Suspended (in-stock). Condition code J is assigned to items that are in stock but suspended from issue and use. This includes items that have been suspended pending lot acceptance test in the CMRS system. Items also may be awaiting condition classification or analysis, where the true condition is not known.
Suspended (returns). Condition code K applies to items turned in by custodians and awaiting condition classification. This material must be properly classified within 45 days, unless granted an extension by the owning service.
Suspended (litigation). Items in this condition code L are being held pending litigation or negotiation with contractors or common carriers. Examples include items that were damaged in transit, and pending financial resolution.
Suspended (in-work). Items in condition code M category are identified on inventory control records. These items have been turned over to a maintenance facility or contractor for processing. This is one of the least used condition codes.
Suspended (ammunition suitable for emergency combat use only). Items in condition code N are suspended from issue and use, except for emergency combat use.
Unserviceable (reclamation). Condition code P includes material determined to be hazardous, uneconomically repairable, and unserviceable. The Air Force has adopted a business practice to use this condition code for hazardous items including non-repairable aircraft egress items removed for time change with shelf/service life within 9 months of expiration.
Unserviceable (waste military munitions). Waste military munitions will be assigned condition code V only under the authority of a designated DOD or service designated disposal authority (DDA). The waste munitions must meet criteria of waste munitions under the EPA military munitions rule implementation policy, be safe to store and ship based on DOD Explosive Safety Board Department of Transportation criteria, and have a current serviceability inspection.
