Adopting Activity
 
An Adopting Activity is the official DoD technical focal point for a Non-Government Standard (NGS) that has been adopted for repetitive use by the DoD activities with a Custodian or Reviewer Interest. The alpha, numeric, or alphanumeric code comes from the SD-1, Standardization Directory, a publication available from ASSIST which displays specific responsibilities by FSC and Standardization Area for standardization management activities.

Adopting Activities have the following responsibilities:
  • Adopt NGSs and represent the Department of Defense on all technical matters related to the NGS.
  • Coordinate draft NGSs with other interested SMAs to solicit comments and identify Custodian and review interest.
  • Resolve and consolidate DoD comments on draft NGSs, and provide DoD comments and positions in time to be considered for inclusion in the approved NGS.
  • Prepare adoption notices for NGSs and submit the notice together with a copy of the approved NGS to DLA Document Services for indexing, stocking, and distribution. (Policy Memo 00-3)
  • Ensure that the ASSIST database lists the latest edition of the adopted NGS.
  • Keep the non-government standards body (NGSB) apprised of DoD needs for new standards, changes required to existing standards to make them acceptable to the DoD, and any problems with adopted NGSs.

Adoption Date
 
Adoption Date represents when a Non-Government Standard document was officially recognized or accepted for use by the DoD. The date identifies when the Non-Government standard document was accepted in the ASSIST database.

Air Force Custodian
 
An Air Force Custodian is responsible for compiling comments from all Air Force review activities during the coordination of standardization documents and providing a single set of distilled comments to the preparing activity. The custodian function in the Defense Standardization Program helps to prevent receipt of duplicative comments by the preparing activity, and provides a single contact point for resolution of essential comments.

An Air Force Custodian's responsibilities include:

  • Representing the Department of the Air Force on technical issues involving a standardization document or study.
  • Assisting the Preparing Activity in identifying Review Activities in the Department of the Air Force.
  • Resolving and consolidating Review Activity comments in their Department and presenting a unified position on a standardization document to the Preparing Activity.
  • Working with the Preparing Activity to resolve their Department's essential comments.

All Of These Words
 
All Of These Words refers to the ability to obtain a list of all document images that contain each and every word specified in the corresponding text entry field. For example, if you specified the words "TOMATO" and "SAUCE", the search results listing would provide only those documents that contained both words. Note that it is not necessary for the individual words to be adjacent to one another within the document nor that they be specified in the text entry field in any particular order.

Note: Please be aware that not all PDF-based document image files contain searchable text elements (depending on whether or not the files were generated from legacy scanned images); therefore, certain files may not be considered during searches and the search results may NOT reflect the entire index.

Any Of These Words
 
Any Of These Words refers to the ability to obtain a list of all document images that contain one or more of the words specified in the corresponding text entry field. For example, if you specified the words "TOMATO" and "SAUCE", the search results listing would provide every document that contained "TOMATO", "SAUCE", or both. Note that it is not necessary for the individual words to be adjacent to one another within the document nor that they be specified in the text entry field in any particular order.

Note: Please be aware that not all PDF-based document image files contain searchable text elements (depending on whether or not the files were generated from legacy scanned images); therefore, certain files may not be considered during searches and the search results may NOT reflect the entire index.

Army Custodian
 
An Army Custodian is responsible for compiling comments from all Army review activities during the coordination of standardization documents and providing a single set of distilled comments to the preparing activity. The custodian function in the Defense Standardization Program helps to prevent receipt of duplicative comments by the preparing activity, and provides a single contact point for resolution of essential comments.

An Army Custodian's responsibilities include:

  • Representing their Department of the Army on technical issues involving a standardization document or study.
  • Assisting the Preparing Activity in identifying Review Activities in the Department of the Army.
  • Resolving and consolidating Review Activity comments in their Department and presenting a unified position on a standardization document to the Preparing Activity.
  • Working with the Preparing Activity to resolve their Department's essential comments.

The first web site listed is that of the non-government standards body (NGSB) who published the document. Occasionally an NGS is available as a free download from the sponsoring NGSB web site; however, usually they are available for purchase only. The links are provided only as a public service. The U.S. government, including the Department of Defense (the primary sponsoring federal agency of the ASSIST Quick Search), neither endorses nor guarantees in any way, the external organizations, services, advice, or products included in the web site links. Furthermore, the U.S. government neither controls nor guarantees the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of the information contained in non-government web site links.

Coordination Level
 
Coordination is the process of having standardization documents reviewed and commented on by Government and private sector organizations. Coordinated documents are those that areused by more than one Military Department or Defense Agency. Most standardization documents should be coordinated ones.

There are three possible coordination levels:

- Full. Documents with this coordination level are used by more than one Military Department or Defense Agency. Such documents are coordinated with Custodians, Review Activities, Lead Standardization Activity, and if applicable, with civilian agencies, private sector, and/or other users.

- Limited. Documents with this coordination level are used by only one Military Department or Defense Agency and do not have Custodians.

- Interim. Documents with this coordination level allow for quick changes to be made to coordinated documents when time does not permit normal coordination. No coordination is required for the interim document. Only one interim document shall exist at a time for a coordinated document.

DID Approval Authority
 
The DID Approval Authority is the organization in each Military Department/Defense Agency with delegated responsibility to approve new, revised, and canceled Data Item Descriptions within their respective Department/Agency.

Distribution Statement
 
Distribution Statements are statements on technical data that direct people who handle technical data how they can distribute the document. DoD Instruction 5230.24 dated 23 August, 2012 requires the controlling DoD office responsible for creating the technical documents to determine the appropriate mark and ensure that the document is marked correctly. The following distribution statements and notices are authorized for use on DoD technical documents:

When local circumstances or experience indicates that this destruction method is not sufficiently protective of the information, local authorities may prescribe other methods but must balance the additional expense against the degree of sensitivity.

All records shall be maintained and managed in accordance with National Archives and Records Administration approved dispositions to ensure proper maintenance, use, accessibility, and preservation, regardless of format or medium.


DLA Custodian
 
A DLA Custodian is responsible for compiling comments from all DLA review activities during the coordination of standardization documents and providing a single set of distilled comments to the preparing activity. The custodian function in the Defense Standardization Program helps to prevent receipt of duplicative comments by the preparing activity, and provides a single contact point for resolution of essential comments.

A DLA Custodian's responsibilities include:

  • Representing their Defense Agency on technical issues involving a standardization document or study.
  • Assisting the Preparing Activity in identifying Review Activities in their Defense Agency.
  • Resolving and consolidating Review Activity comments in their Agency and presenting a unified position on a standardization document to the Preparing Activity.
  • Working with the Preparing Activity to resolve their Agency's essential comments.

Document Category
 
Document Category identifies the type of standardization document (e.g., performance, detail, or federal specification; military standard or standard practice, commercial item description, etc.).

Document Date
 
Document Date indicates the most recent published modification to a document. Depending on where a document is in its lifecycle, this date can be the publication date of a new document, or the date of the last revision, amendment, supplement, or notice.

Note: For a non-government standard (NGS), ASSIST displays the [Adoption Date] and, if applicable, the [Reaffirmation Date]. For certain International Treaty Agreements, such as NATO standards, ASSIST displays the [Promulgation Date] and U.S. [Ratification Date].

DID Date
 
DID Date represents the most recent published date of a Data Item Description (DID) document (e.g., the date for a new DID or the date the DID was last revised).

Document ID
 
Document ID refers to the alphanumeric identifier associated with a defense or federal specification or standard, military handbook, commercial or data item description, drawing, nongovernment standard, international standardization agreement, test operations procedure, or other Defense Standardization Program document. Search results include slash sheet, section, part, or volume numbers, as well as revision, amendment, notice, or supplement symbols. When searching using this field, Quick Search will return a list of Document IDs, with the specified search characters (or partial string of characters) found in their Document IDs. Partial values are accepted without use of special wildcard characters.

Examples:

   Use MIL-PRF-50 to find:

  • MIL-PRF-5038J
  • MIL-PRF-5041K SUP 1
  • MIL-PRF-5096F NOT 1
  • MIL-PRF-50084G
   Use "DTL-100" to find:

  • MIL-DTL-10035L
  • MIL-DTL-10057J
  • MIL-DTL-10058J
   Use "4971" to find:

  • MIL-P-4971(1) NOT 1
  • MIL-G-14971A(4) NOT 2
  • A-A-54971 NOT 1
  • SAE-AMS4971

Document Number
 
This value refers to the numeric series assigned to a document. A specific Document Number may be associated with multiple document categories, such as defense or federal specifications, standards, military handbooks, commercial or data item descriptions, drawings, or non-government standards.

Quick Search provides the ability to search against documents associated with a specific Document Number series. The results list returned by the search will include all corresponding slash sheets, if applicable. This search feature is particularly useful when you know the Document Number but don't know the current document prefix (e.g., MIL-C may now be MIL-PRF or MIL-DTL as a result of Acquisition Reform initiatives). Partial values are NOT accepted.

Examples:

Search against 1361 to find:

  • MIL-I-1361C NOT 1
  • MIL-STD-1361A NOT 1
  • W-S-001361 NOT 1
  • QPL-1361-38 NOT 1
  • STANAG-1361 ED. 1
  • NAS1353THRUNAS1366
NOTES: Some specifications indexed in ASSIST are drawings that describe a range of Government part numbers. The document number for such a specification comprises the beginning part number, the term “THRU” and the ending part number. The last entry in the above example was included in the search results because 1361 is between 1353 and 1366.

Document Part Description
 
The DSP standardization community routinely modifies documents to reflect changes in technology, practices, and resource availability.  As these documents evolve, document parts such as revisions, amendments, supplements, and notices are published to reflect current requirements, corrections, and administrative actions.  These current and historical document parts are indexed in the ASSIST as they become available.  ASSIST displays this "revision history" to permit users to access and download individual parts of a given document.  Every document part has a corresponding file or inventory item associated with it.  Most document parts are stored electronically and, with the exception of controlled distribution documents and special cases, these files may be downloaded directly from ASSIST free of charge.  The media icon to the left of the revision history indicates the format and availability of each part.

The Document Part Description also includes detail information to clearly differentiate between version-specific parts (e.g., Amendment 1 vs. Amendment 2).  When notices are listed, the revision (if any) and notice level are provided along with a description indicating Validation, Inactivation, Cancellation, Adoption, Reactivation, or Reinstatement. Examples of document parts and descriptions include:


Base Document Base Document (indicates original document without revisions)
Revision Revision B
Amendment Revision B Amendment 5
Notice Revision C Notice 1 - Cancellation
Supplement Revision B Supplement 1A
Inactivation Notice Revision A Notice 2 - Inactivation
Adoption Notice Notice 1 - Adoption

Document Status
 
Preparing Activities are responsible for the maintenance of their standardization documents to ensure that document requirements are updated or validated to accurately describe user needs, current technology, modern industrial practices and relevant testing methods.  As technology and user needs change, a document's usefulness in the acquisition of systems, equipments and related logistics support may diminish or it may become obsolete.  Document Status defines the degree to which a document may be used in the acquisition process and may have one of three values:

Active The document is approved for use in all acquisitions or new design.  The document date in ASSIST reflects the date of the most current version of the document.
Inactive Inactive for New Design documents shall not be used, except to support or reprocure existing items.  For these documents, a formal Inactive for New Design Notice (Inactivation) has been issued as a means to alert the standardization community of the change in status.  In the normal life cycle of a standardization document, it is common that an inactive for new design action will take place many years before a document is eventually canceled.  Note that the document date in ASSIST reflects the date of Inactivation for New Design.
Canceled The document's Preparing Activity has determined that the document is no longer needed for acquisition, reprocurement or design.  In such cases, a formal Cancellation Notice has been issued as a means to alert the standardization community of the change in status.  The document date in ASSIST reflects the date of cancellation.

DoD Interest Level
 
DoD Interest Level refers to a code/designation that identifies the level of registered interest the DoD has in a federal standardization document. Should the DoD have any level of interest other than coordination, the document's Preparing Activity will be shown instead of the Military Coordinating Activity.

Find Term1,Term2,…
 

Quick Search will search for any string of alpha or numeric characters entered in this field, exactly as they are entered, to include spaces or special characters, except for commas, since commas are reserved to separate multiple search terms. The default setting is to search for terms in the Title or Keywords or Scope ; however, you may choose to limit the search by selecting one of the following from the drop-down list: Title, Keywords, Scope, Title or Keywords.


Examples:

1. If you enter [pressure valve] For [All Terms] In [Title or Keywords or Scope], ASSIST will find 3 documents where the exact phrase [pressure valve] appears in one of those fields (in this instance, in the Scope).

YMIL-V-6125D NOT 3I482025-Feb-2013Valve, Regulating, Fluid Pressure, Type C-1
YMIL-P-17303D(2) NOT 1C533004-Dec-2008Packing Materials, Plastic Metallic and Plastic Nonmetallic (See Notice 1 for Replacement Information)
YMIL-P-62224(1) NOT 2C668518-Apr-1990PROBE ASSEMBLY, BATTERY TEMPERATURE (NO S/S DOCUMENT)

2. If you enter [pressure valve] For [Any Term] In [Title or Keywords or Scope], the results will be the same as in the first example, because ASSIST interprets [pressure valve] as one string (i.e., a single search term).

3. If you enter [pressure,valve] For [All Words] in [Title or Keywords or Scope], and choose a [Status]=[Active], ASSIST will find 99 documents where both words appear, in any order, in any one of those fields. Note that search terms are highlighted within the Title (see first 10 results below). The two results where only the term [valve] appears in the Title are listed because both terms appear in each document’s Scope.

4. If you enter [pressure,valve] For [Any Word] in [Title or Keywords or Scope], and choose a [Status]=[Active], you'll get 1,179 results, as ASSIST will report when either word appears in the Title, Keywords, or Scope. Again, note that the search terms are highlighted in the Title (see first 10 results below). Results where neither search term appears in the Title are listed because at least one term appears in the documents’ Keywords or Scope.

FSC/Area
 
Federal Supply Class (FSC) codes are used to group products into logical families for supply management purposes.  The four-digit fields, fully discussed in Cataloging Handbook H2-1, are used in the standardization program to group standardization documents associated with products into logical families for standardization management purposes.  Similarly, Standardization Areas refer to categories for engineering technologies, disciplines, and practices that do not fall under a FSC.  The ASSIST maintains a current catalog of all FSCs and Areas to which documents are associated. Note that documents may also be classified within a Federal Supply Group, a two-digit code followed by 'GP', to categorize a small number of documents that can only be categorized in general, group-level terms.

ASSIST-Quick Search provides the ability to search and locate documents associated with a single FSC, FSG, or Standardization Area.  Use the drop-down list provided to select from one of nearly 100 valid codes to search against.

Examples:

FSC: 1610 AIRCRAFT PROPELLERS
1615 HELICOPTER ROTOR BLADES, DRIVE MECHANISM
1620 AIRCRAFT LANDING GEAR COMPONENTS
1630 AIRCRAFT WHEEL & BRAKE SYSTEMS

FSG: 16GP AIRCRAFT COMPONENTS AND ACCESSORIES
59GP ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT COMPONENTS

Area: CMAN CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT
ISDN INTERNATIONAL STANDARDIZATION DOCUMENTS
TCSS TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS STANDARDS

Governing Specification
 
A Governing Specification is the specification that stipulates the need for qualification.

Implements ISA
 
Implements ISA indicates the document is an implementing document for at least one International Standardization Agreement (ISA).

Interim Amd/Chg Notice
 
An Interim Amd/Chg Notice designates specifications and standards that have interim amendments or interim change notices in effect. In these cases, the interim and non-interim versions of the document are stored as separate line items in the database. If you are searching for an interim amendment or interim change notice version of a document, select 'Yes' for this option. Otherwise, select 'No'.

International Agreements
 
International Agreements indicates certain provisions of this document are subject to International Standardization Agreements.

Keywords
 
Guidance on including key words in Section 6 of military specifications may be found in MIL-STD-961E(2), Defense and Program-Unique Specifications Format and Content, 09-JAN-2014, which states:

“. 5.11.11 Subject term (key word) listing. Specifications shall contain a listing of subject terms (key words) to enable the document to be identified during retrieval searches. If the specification requires the use of any toxic chemicals, hazardous substances, or ozone-depleting chemicals, these should be included in the key word listing. The subject terms should not repeat words found in the title of the document, except if the word is used in a phrase not part of the document title. The subject terms are to be listed alphabetically in a single column with the main noun or word first, followed by sequential modifiers separated by commas. Word groups that are considered to be proper or recognized nouns, such as “printed circuit board,” should not be separated. The number of subject terms listed shall not exceed 25.”

Lead Agent
 
A Lead Agent is a designation given to the Joint Staff, a Military Service, a Defense Agency, or a combatant command to indicate prime responsibility for the subject matter assigned to a NATO or other international organization or entity. The Lead Agent has overall responsibility for developing, coordinating, reviewing, maintaining, and representing the United States in the given subject matter.

Lead Standardization Activity
 
The lead Standardization Activity (LSA) has approval authority for standardization actions related to development of new specifications, standards, and other types of DoD standardization documents; revisions of existing documents, and adoption of non-Government standards. The LSA is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of DoD standardization policy within its assigned areas of responsibility. Furthermore, the LSA acts as the Defense Standardization Program's functional experts within its assigned areas of responsibility and is responsible for ensuring the proper implementation of DoD policy within standardization documents.

An LSA's specific responsibilities include:

  • Working with the Participating Activities, managing and coordinating standardization efforts to ensure the optimal degree of standardization across the DoD to:
    • Ensure interoperability with our allies and among the Military Departments.
    • Reduce total ownership costs.
    • Allow for rapid insertion of new technology to promote modernization of equipment.
    • Reduce cycle time for the development of systems and acquisition of parts.
  • Maintaining awareness of standardization needs and activities in the DoD.
  • Serving as the DoD-wide technical focal point.
  • Evaluating and approving or disapproving requests for standardization projects, assigning numbers for approved projects, and ensuring that no standardization documents are developed or revised that do not comply with the policies and procedures of the DSP.
  • Suggesting alternative approaches to requestors when standardization projects are disapproved.
  • Recommending changes to standardization policies and procedures to their DepSO.
  • Resolving standardization problems between SMAs, or elevating the problem to their DepSO for appropriate action.
  • Identifying chronic standardization problems or noncompliance with policies and procedures to their DepSO.
  • Helping Preparing Activities identify standardization document Custodians.
  • Helping NGSBs to identify DoD personnel to serve on technical committees or adopting activities.

Navy Custodian
 
A Navy Custodian is responsible for compiling comments from all Navy review activities during the coordination of standardization documents and providing a single set of distilled comments to the preparing activity. The custodian function in the Defense Standardization Program helps to prevent receipt of duplicative comments by the preparing activity, and provides a single contact point for resolution of essential comments.

A Navy Custodian's responsibilities include:

  • Representing the Department of the Navy on technical issues involving a standardization document or study.
  • Assisting the Preparing Activity in identifying Review Activities in the Department of the Navy.
  • Resolving and consolidating Review Activity comments in their Department and presenting a unified position on a standardization document to the Preparing Activity.
  • Working with the Preparing Activity to resolve their Department's essential comments.

Next Review Due
 
Next Review Due - Indicates the date when a DoD-prepared document will be considered overage and due for a review to determine if it is still valid or in need of maintenance. For a non-government standard (NGS), this date indicates when the adoption of an NGS needs to be reviewed and either, updated, withdrawn, or reaffirmed. The Next Review Due is determined by adding either 5 or 10 years to the Document Date or, for an NGS, to either the Adoption Date or the most recent Reaffirmation Date, according to the following criteria:
  • For Active documents, [Next Review Due:] = [Document Date] + 5 years.
  • For Inactive documents and Active documents identified by preparing activity as stabilized maintenance, [Next Review Due:] = [Document Date] + 10 years.
  • For non-government standards (NGS) Tier 1 Adoption Notices, [Next Review Due:] = [Adoption/Reaffirmation Date] + 5 years.
  • For NGS Tier 2 Adoption Notices, [Next Review Due:] = [Adoption/Reaffirmation Date] + 10 years.

Other Custodian
 
An Other Custodian is responsible for compiling comments from all of the DoD and Federal review activities not directly associated with one of the Military Departments during the coordination of standardization documents and providing a single set of distilled comments to the preparing activity. The custodian function in the Defense Standardization Program helps to prevent receipt of duplicative comments by the preparing activity, and provides a single contact point for resolution of essential comments.

An Other Custodian's responsibilities include:

  • Representing non-military organizations on technical issues involving a standardization document or study.
  • Assisting the Preparing Activity in identifying non-military Review Activities.
  • Resolving and consolidating non-military Review Activity comments and presenting a unified position on a standardization document to the Preparing Activity.
  • Working with the Preparing Activity to resolve non-military essential comments.

Pages
 
The Pages value refers to the total number of pages, including blanks, associated with a given document part.  This information is provided to the user as part of the Revision History screen to give the customer an idea of how large a document will be when a copy is obtained from the ASSIST.  In cases where documents are stored electronically, the page count will normally reflect the number of pages that will be visible when the digital file is downloaded and viewed.  In cases where a document is stored in hard copy as a warehouse item, Pages refers to the number of document pages that will be shipped.  The Pages information loosely correlates to the Size provided in the adjacent column.

Part Status
 
The ASSIST maintains information regarding the current status of individual component parts of a document (e.g., base document, revisions, amendments, change notices, etc.) that comprise the document's "revision history". A document's components are either "current" (i.e., needed to have a complete set of the current version of the document) or "historical" (i.e., earlier revisions, amendments, change notices, or other notices that have been superseded by subsequent actions). Do not confuse the term Part Status with Document Status which refers to the operational status of the document (i.e., Active, Inactive [for New Design], or canceled). Part Status values are further defined below.

Preparing Activity
 
A Preparing Activity is the military or federal organization responsible for the preparation of a standardization document. The alpha, numeric, or alphanumeric code is from the SD-1, Standardization Directory, a publication available from ASSIST which displays specific responsibilities by FSC and Standardization Area for each standardization management activity (SMA).

A Preparing Activity's responsibilities include:
  • Developing, updating, inactivating for new design, cancelling, and validating standardization documents.
  • Coordinating standardization documents with Custodian, Review Activities, other DoD activities, civilian agencies, and industry, as appropriate.
  • Considering all comments and incorporating or resolving essential comments.
  • Submitting any essential comments that cannot be resolved to the responsible LSA.
  • Approving standardization documents after resolving all essential comments.
  • Submitting documents to DLA Document Services for printing, distribution, and indexing.
  • Preparing and submitting standardization project status data, including initiation, updates, completion, and discontinuation of standardization projects. This reporting requirement has been assigned Report Control Symbol DD-A&T(AR)759 in accordance with DoD 8910.1-M (reference (g)).
  • Responding to user feedback.
  • Creating, maintaining, and archiving official case files for their standardization documents

Preparing Service
 
Preparing Service is the military department or defense or federal agency responsible for the preparation of a standardization document or the adoption of a Non-Government Standard (NGS).

The preparing service codes and descriptions are:

CODE DESCRIPTION
AR Army
NA Navy
AF Air Force
DL Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)
OT Other DoD
OF Other Federal
UA Unassigned

Project Number
 
Project Number - refers to standardization project numbers. All DoD Preparing Activities must get standardization project numbers to revise, amend, change, reinstate, inactivate for new design, cancel, or develop a new standardization document. For Non-Government Standards, the Adopting Activity must get a standardization project number for the adoption or withdrawal of adoption of a NGS. Item reduction studies and engineering practice studies also require standardization project numbers. The only type of standardization document that does not require a project number is a validation notice.

The standardization project number consists of two parts. The first part is the applicable FSG, the FSC, or the standardization area. The second part is a nonsignificant four-digit number serially assigned in each FSG, FSC, or standardization area. (For example: 2620-0023, 15GP-1590, or CMAN-0934.) Once all of the nonsignificant four-digit numbers have been assigned in a FSG, a FSC, or a standardization area, the numbering sequence starts again with "-0001)." Closely related projects initiated in the same timeframe may be identified by a project number followed by a dash and sequentially assigned subproject numbers. (For example, 5960-0001-001, 5960-0001-002, and 5960-0001-003.)


Promulgation Date
 
Promlugation Date, which applies only to International Standardization Agreements, is the date a document was officially promulgated by its International Treaty Organization.

QPL/QML
 
QPL/QML are lists of products from manufacturers who have demonstrated their ability to meet the technical and testing requirements in a governing specification with a requirement for qualification. Qualification is used to establish sources for critical items or for items that require expensive or lengthy testing procedures. Policies and procedures concerning Qualification are provided in DoD 4120.24-M, Appendix 2 and Policy Memo 07-3. Additional guidance can be found in the SD-6.

For definitions, background and policy information, click here.

Ratification Date
 
Ratification Date, which applies only to International Standardization Agreements, is the date the document was ratified by the United States.

Reaffirmation Date
 
Reaffirmation Date represents the last time the DoD Adopting Activity reaffirmed DoD interest in a Non-Government Standard (NGS).

Scope
 
The Scope paragraph is a textual description of the scope of the standard / specification / test method / etc. that the document covers.

Examples:

   This specification covers gasket material for use in shipboard water stills.
   This test method covers the determination of total ash in leather.

Size
 
Most document component parts are available for download in PDF format. The Revision History provides Size information (in Kilobytes) for each file as a tool to help users gauge how long it will take to download selected files.

File sizes for older documents tend to be greater than those for newer documents since older files often contain scanned images that were subsequently converted to PDF. File sizes are typically smaller for newer documents since the PDF files are produced directly from the source and no additional format conversion or translation is required. Note that historical documents containing engineering drawings, charts, and other graphics will generally be larger since this information is captured as TIF images and embedded within the PDF files.

Download times may vary from person to person depending on the user’s connection speed.

In cases where the media type identifies a given document part as a warehouse item, the term ‘N/A’ will appear in the Size column since inventory items may only be ordered through ASSIST or by contacting DLA Document Services Customer Support at 215-737-8000 [DSN: 444-8000 ].  While ASSIST users are encouraged to download specifications and standards from the ASSIST, particularly large digital files may also be ordered using these methods.

Spec/Std Sheet
 
The Spec/Std Sheet is the numeric designation of the document's specification or standard sheet, section, or part number.   If no value is entered, a zero (0) is assumed as the default.   Valid values for the slash number are 0-99999.

Examples of Spec/Std Sheet
2  for  MIL-E-1/2B(1)
2  for  MIL-BULL-544 PART II
203  for  MIL-STD-188-203-1


Sponsor
 
A Sponsor is a NATO Tasking Authority and Working Group that is responsible for the development and maintenance of a standardization document. A Tasking Authority is a principal NATO committee that has the authority to task its subordinate groups to produce standardization agreements and Allied Publications.

Note: A Tasking Authority may delegate this function to a subordinate group (e.g., Working Group).

Sub/Part Number
 
Sub/Part Number is the numeric designation of an additional part or section number required to uniquely identify a document.  This field is primarily used in specifying military standards.  If no value is entered, a zero (0) is assumed as the default.  Valid values for the sub/part numbers are 0-99.

Examples of Sub/Part Number
1  for  MIL-STD-188-203-1
3  for  DOD-STD-1399-72-3

Superseding Document
 
A Superseding Document is a document that supersedes a canceled document.

This Exact Phrase
 
This Exact Phrase refers to the ability to obtain a list of all document images that contain a specific textual phrase. For example, if you specified the phrase "TOMATO SAUCE", the search results listing would provide only those documents that contained both words appearing adjacent to one another in the document as well as occurring in the same order as specified in the text entry field.

Note: Please be aware that not all PDF-based document image files contain searchable text elements (depending on whether or not the files were generated from legacy scanned images); therefore, certain files may not be considered during searches and the search results may NOT reflect the entire index.

Title
 
Document titles consist of a basic item name and sufficient modifiers to differentiate between similarly titled documents indexed in ASSIST, where item names conform to Cataloging Handbook H6. The usual practice is to first identify the general subject, followed by the detail or specific application. For example, a specification that describes requirements for an electric, propeller-model, exhaust fan may be indexed in ASSIST as "Fan, Ventilating, Propeller, Electric, Exhaust." Where supersession information is available for a canceled document, superseding document information is appended to the end of the document’s title, denoted with “S/S by…” or “use…” within parentheses. Users are advised to evaluate the potential use of superseding documents on a case-by-case basis. (See Keywords .)

Transformation Date
 
Transformation Date represents the date when a QPL or QML document was transformed to an electronic data set in the Qualified Products Database (QPD).

Validation Date
 
Validation Date is the date a Preparing Activity last reviewed a document and confirmed it is still needed and technically useful for acquisition.

Warehouse Document
 
A Warehouse Document is a document that is not available for download but which may be ordered from DLA Document Services. Warehouse documents are stored in hard copy format and may be requested free of charge by accessing the ASSIST web site and ordering a copy of the document.

Withdrawal Date
 
Withdrawal Date represents the date on which a Withdrawal Notice is issued against to indicate that DoD no longer has an interest in a formerly adopted Non-Government Standard (NGS).

Without These Words
 
Without These Words refers to the ability to search for documents that do not contain any of the words specified in the corresponding text entry field. For example, if you specified the words "TOMATO" and "SAUCE", the search results listing would exclude every document that contained "TOMATO", "SAUCE", or both. Note that it is not necessary for the individual words to be adjacent to one another within the document nor that they be specified in the text entry field in any particular order. However, in order to use this option, you must further restrict your search by specifying text to find in at least one of the other three entry fields.

Note: Please be aware that not all PDF-based document image files contain searchable text elements (depending on whether or not the files were generated from legacy scanned images); therefore, certain files may not be considered during searches and the search results may NOT reflect the entire index.

Weapon System Impact Tool (WSIT)
 
WSIT is a powerful tool that can provide valuable insight to those who manage the life cycle of today's complex weapon systems. This tool gathers information about weapon systems and their specifications from multiple data sources, such as cataloging data and procurement history files.

With WSIT's query features, users can explore the relationships between specifications and weapons systems. For example, a user can estimate the impact on a weapon system if a specification is changed or canceled, or if a manufacturer no longer supplies a part that supports the weapon system.

If a part conforming to a specification fails its testing requirements, WSIT will show other items on the weapon system were tested using that specification. In addition, WSIT will be able to identify what other weapon systems could possibly be affected by the failed part.

WSIT can be used to generate a list of weapon systems in which a specified document-military specification, federal specification, commercial item description, or non-government standard-is called out. And, it can also provide a list of the national stock numbers and controlling part numbers referenced in that document.
