(e.g., Titles 29, 40, 49, 16, and 10 CFR); applicable building codes (including NFPA codes, the
National Electric Code, structural codes); and system safety analyses that have been performed
on recoupment facilities or operations. Only the hazard classes certified by authorized personnel
may be processed at a recoupment facility.
D. The following materials may not be recouped at any facility because of regulatory
limitations or the high risk to personnel:
1. Radioactive commodities (HCC A1) that are unsealed as a result of being damaged.
Damaged packaging can be replaced if the source is undamaged and sealed, if the installation
possesses a license for the item, and if the RPO has authorized the action.
2. Pesticides. Pesticides (HCC T5) will be returned to the manufacturer/formulator for
relabeling or repackaging, or processed for disposal in accordance with chapter 11.
3. Aerosols. Aerosols (V2, V3) must be sent for disposal or crushing to a state- or Federal-
permitted facility that has the engineering controls and safety features comparable to those of an
aerosol-filling facility. This action can be coordinated through the DRMO.
4. Explosives. Explosives (E1, E2) must be disposed of in accordance with DoD 6055.9,
5. Compressed Gases. Compressed Gases (G1 - G9) in Cylinders and Flasks. These must be
processed in accordance with DLAR 4145.25/AR 700-68/NAVSUPINST 4440.128/MCO
10330.2C/AFR 67-12, Storage and Handling of Compressed Gases and Liquids in Cylinders.
6. Spontaneously Combustible Materials. Spontaneously Combustible (R1) materials must be
sent for disposal to a state- or Federal-permitted facility that has engineering controls, and safety
features on the same order as those of a manufacturing facility. This action may be coordinated
through the DRMO.
7. K1 Infectious Substances. For disposal of infectious substances (K1), contact the medical
officer, veterinary officer, or Defense Personnel Support Center, or process in accordance with
Title 42 CFR.
E. The recoupment operation must ensure the following:
1. Ensure contract number, batch, and CAGE code are perpetuated when recontainerizing to
negate loss of identity of contractor/manufacturer.
2. Only stage workload that can be physically processed in any given shift. Material, unless
seriously leaking or potentially harmful to personnel or the environment, should stay in
conforming storage until workload allows recoupment.
3. Perform proper recordkeeping in order to establish an audit trail of costs incurred for man-
hours and materials. This will ensure reimbursement to proper parties.
