MAINTENANCE FORMS AND PROCEDURES.
Department of the Army forms and procedures used for the equipment will
be those prescribed by DA Pam 738-750, Functional Users Manual for the Army
Maintenance Management System (TAMMS), as contained in the Maintenance Man-
CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC).
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materiel is a con-
tinuing concern. It is important that any corrosion problems with this item be reported
so that the problem can be corrected and improvements can be made to prevent the
problem in future items.
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can
also include deterioration of other materials, such as rubber and plastic. Unusual
cracking, softening, swelling, or breaking of these materials may be a corrosion prob-
lem. If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using SF Form 368 (Prod-
uct Quality Deficiency Report). Use of key words such as corrosion, rust,
deterioration, or cracking will ensure that the information is identified as a CPC
problem. The form should be submitted to the address specified in DA Pam 738-750.
