Marking of Militarized equipment and items
thereof shall be as specified herein and shall be in accordance with
requirement 67 of MIL-STD-454. Identification plates shall be designed for
normal service conditions in accordance with MIL-P-15024 and
4.7.1 Mounting and location. Identification plates and information plates
shall be mounted in a conspicuous space generally on the front panel of the
item level to which it applies, when possible.
4.7.2 Hazardous materials. The contracting activity
shall be provided a material safety data sheet (MSDS) at time of submittal of
bid for each hazardous material (see 22.214.171.124
). The MSDS shall contain as a minimum all the
data required by OSHA form 174 which is contained in FED-STD-313. The MSDS
shall be included with each shipment of the material covered by the end item
specification. In order to obtain the MSDS, Federal Acquisition Regulation
(FAR) clause 52.223-3 must be incorporated into the contract. Hazardous
material containers shall be labelled in accordance with 29 CFR Part
1910.1200, MIL-STD-129 and the appropriate Environmental Protection Agency and
Department of Transportation requirements. Parts containing hazardous
material, such as beryllium oxide insulators, shall also be labelled with the
appropriate hazard warning.
4.7.3 Marking of electrostatic discharge (ESD) components. Enclosures,
assemblies, and subassemblies containing ESD sensitive components,
MIL-STD-1686, class I or II parts or assemblies, shall be marked in accordance
with MIL-STD-129, DOD-STD-100, or MIL-STD-1285. Also, and ESD warning plate
conforming to Figure 3 shall be readily visible to personnel prior to gaining
access to class 1 and class 2 parts or assemblies.
4.7.4 Electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic discharge control shall be in
accordance with MIL-STD-1686 using the guidance of MIL-HDBK-263. When metal
oxide semiconductor parts and other parts sensitive to electrostatic discharge
are utilized in the equipment, protective circuits shall be incorporated in
the equipment to ensure the ESD sensitive parts and subassemblies are
protected in all phases of handling and testing. Warning labels shall be
affixed to the protective packaging and to the equipment. Warnings shall be
provided in all relevant areas of the equipment technical manual.
Identification markings shall be affixed on all ESD sensitive subassemblies
visible to maintenance personnel prior to maintenance handling in the
equipment. Spare parts, modules, printed circuit board subassemblies, and so
forth, shall be protected from ESD damage. Electrostatic discharge tests shall
be in accordance with MIL-STD-1686.
4.7.5 Marking (lubrication points). Lubrication points shall be marked as
4.7.6 Nomenclature (item name and type designation).
Nomenclature (item name and type designation) for the equipment shall be
established in accordance with MIL-STD-196, MIL-N-18307, and MIL-STD-1399,
section 501. When specified in the end item equipment specification,
nomenclature shall be established in accordance with MIL-STD-1661. The
assignment of type designations does not constitute approval of equipment or
the use of a particular item in a specific set and does not waive any
requirements of the contract involved, nor does the approval of the equipment
constitute approval of the type designation assignment.
circuit identification. Components designed to operate from internal batteries
shall be marked with the following in a convenient form for use by operating
and maintenance personnel:
(a). Battery type number.
Battery location and position
(e). Interconnection between batteries.
4.7.8 Electrical power source plates. Information plates conforming to 29
CFR 1910 and Figure 4 shall be provided on each unit of the equipment that is
powered from multiple electrical power sources.
