Major assemblies that are procured with PEMA funds for initial issue only
as exchange assemblies at DS and GS level. These assemblies will not be
stocked above DS and GS level or returned to depot supply level.
NOTE: Cannibalization or salvage may be used as a source of supply for any items
source coded above except those coded X1 and aircraft support items as restricted
by AR 700-42.
(2) Maintenance Code. Indicates the lowest category of maintenance
authorized to install the listed item. Maintenance codes are:
Direct support maintenance.
General support maintenance.
(3) Recoverability code. Indicates whether unserviceable items should be
returned for recovery or salvage. Items not coded are nonrecoverable. Recovera-
bility codes are:
Repair parts (assemblies and components), special tools and test
equipment which are considered economically reparable at direct and
general support maintenance levels. When the item is no longer
economically reparable, it is normally disposed of at the GS level.
When supply considerations dictate, some of these repair parts may
be listed for automatic return to supply for depot level repair as
set forth in AR 710-50. When so listed, they will be replaced by
supply on an exchange basis.
Repair parts, special tools and test equipment, and assemblies which
are economically reparable at DS and GS activities and which normally
are furnished by supply on an exchange basis. When items are deter-
mined by a GSU to be uneconomically reparable, they will be evacuated to
a depot for evaluation and analysis before final disposition.
High dollar value recoverable repair parts, special tools and test equip-
ment which are subject to special handling and are issued on an exchange
basis. Such items will be repaired or overhauled at depot maintenance
activities only. No repair may be accomplished at lower levels.
Repair parts, special tools and test equipment specifically selected
for salvage by reclamation units because of precious metal content,
critical materials, high dollar value, or reusable casings or castings.
