Instructions. Downgrading instructions are not required for every
classified document, but must be placed on the face of each document to which
they apply. Mark the document "Downgrade to Secret on..." and/or "Downgrade to
Confidential on...," and add the appropriate date
or event. (Note: A downgrading instruction is used in addition to, and not as
a substitute for, declassification instructions.) Downgrading instructions
shall not be applied to documents containing foreign government information or
Restricted Data or Formerly Restricted Data.
