COMPONENTS OF END ITEM (COEI) AND BASIC ISSUE ITEMS (BII) LISTS
Section I. INTRODUCTION
This appendix lists Components of End Item (COEI) and Basic Issue Items (BII) for the Chemical and
Biological Protective Shelter (CBPS) System to help you inventory the items for safe and efficient operation
of the equipment.
The components of End Item and Basic Issue Items are divided into the following sections:
a. Section II. COEI. This listing is for informational purposes only, and is not authority to requisition
replacements. These items are part of the end item, but are removed and separately packaged for
transportation or shipment. As part of the end item, these items must be with the end item
whenever it is issued or transferred between property accounts. Illustrations are furnished to assist
you in identifying the items.
b. Section III. BII. These are the minimum essential items required to place the CBPS in operation, to
operate it, and to perform emergency repairs. Although shipped separately packaged, BII must be
with the CBPS during operation and whenever it is transferred between property accounts. These
illustrations will assist you with hard-to-identify items. This manual is your authority to request/

Organization & Equipment (TOE/MTOE) authorization of the end item.
