B. Material will be selected from stock based on the data contained in parameter tables in the
system and information contained on the requisition. The exact quantity specified on the release
document will be selected whenever possible. The DD Form 1348-1 (Issue Release/Receipt
Document) displays pertinent information such as document number, quantity, NSN, and
condition, etc. An RF device or hardcopy pick ticket displays information pertaining to
C. If the required quantity is not available in the location shown on the pick ticket/RF device,
the release document will be processed in accordance with denial action procedures.
D. Stock will be selected based upon SHELF LIFE criteria/FIFO principles for shelf life items.
For non shelf life items, the policy is to use most efficient pick path thereby limiting the number
of locations to pick from.
E. If the NSN is under inventory, follow local selection procedures.
F. At some point in the receiving process or prior to offering for transportation, the product must
be queried to ensure an MSDS is in the HMIS. If not, an MSDS must be obtained in accordance
with local procedures, input into the HMIS, and offered with each shipment until the HMIS
MSDS input has been confirmed. In the event of Foreign Military Sales (FMS), an MSDS must
be offered with each shipment since FMS recipients generally do not have access to the HMIS.
5.7 Temporary Staging of Hazardous Materials. When circumstances dictate that material
not be moved directly from storage to the packaging operation, provisions must be made for
segregating the material in a manner that will preclude commingling of incompatible materials.
The probability of accidental damage or release of hazardous substances is significantly increased
during this phase of operations. In some cases, material originally packaged and labeled for
transportation will have lost its hazard identity when outer packagings and labels were discarded
for various reasons. It is imperative, therefore, that segregation requirements be rigidly
maintained from the time material is removed from stock to the time it has again been packaged
and labeled for transportation. When space considerations permit, the required segregation may
be achieved by retaining the material in the immediate vicinity of the storage location from which
it was selected. When an alternative central staging area is used, precautions must be taken to
ensure that segregation is maintained throughout all movements until the material is received at
the hazardous materials packaging operation. The primary method of segregation used should be
the HCC system described in Chapter 4. This method should be followed until the material is
staged prior to loading. At this point, segregation requirements are determined based on the
hazard class of the material and the segregation table for carriage by public highway, shown as
of this document,
in 49 CFR 177.848.
5.8 Direct Shipments From Storage Areas. In some cases, it will be more practicable to issue
and ship directly from the storage area than to move the hazardous materials to a staging area or
freight consolidation area. This is particularly true in the case of bulk shipments, drummed
