C18.104.22.168. Derivative classifiers must carefully analyze the
material they are classifying to determine what information it contains or
reveals and evaluate that information against the instructions provided by
the classification guidance or the markings on source documents.
C22.214.171.124. Drafters of documents that must be derivatively
classified should be encouraged to portion mark their drafts and keep
records of the sources they use, to facilitate derivative classification
of the finished product.
C126.96.36.199. Declassification instructions for derivatively
classified documents shall not be automatically copied from source
documents. They must be determined as required by Chapter 4,
and applied in accordance with Chapter 5 of this Regulation.
C188.8.131.52. When material is derivatively classified based on
"multiple sources" (more than one security classification guide,
classified source document, or combination thereof), the derivative
classifier must compile a list of the sources used. A copy of this list
must be included in or attached to the file or record copy of the
C3.2.2. Special Cases
C184.108.40.206. If information is extracted from a document or
section of a document classified by compilation, the derivative classifier
will consult the explanation on the source document to determine the
appropriate classification. If that does not provide enough guidance, the originator of the
source document should be contacted for assistance.
C220.127.116.11. If the derivative classifier has reason to believe
the classification applied to information is inappropriate, the classifier
of the source document shall be contacted to resolve the issue. The
information will continue to be classified as specified in the source
document until the matter is resolved.
C18.104.22.168. If the activity originating the classified
information no longer exists, the activity that inherited the functions of
the originating activity is responsible for determining the action to be
taken with respect to declassification. If the functions of the
originating activity were dispersed to more than one other activity, the
inheriting activity(ies) cannot be determined or, the functions have
ceased to exist, the Senior Agency Official of the DoD Component of which
the originating activity was a part, is responsible for determining the
action to be taken with respect to
