I am looking for a cross reference of DODICs that require humidity Indicators, and the HI part numbers/NSN's.

​It used to be that CAD/PAD items were only accounted for on Hand Receipt when uninstalled from the aircraft.  Once installed on the aircraft they were accounted for as part of the -17 aircraft inventory and did not require formal Propery Book accountability.

Can anyone point me to any type of doctrinal regulation, pamphlet, circular, letter, memorandum, or any typ of guidance that indicates that CAD/PAD items do not require such formal accountability once installed?

The attached documents will clarify some misinformation circulated regarding wood preservative treatments.

Wood treated with pentachlorophenol is indicated by a "P" marking (Ref USAEHA TG 146 attached).  Pentachlorophenol is no longer used as a wood preservative and has been replaced by alternatives such as Copper-8-quinolinolate, zinc naphthenate, and copper naphthenate.

IAW Dwg 13064136 these alternative treatments that are currently authorized can be recognized by the following markings -

  • PA - Copper-8-quinolinolate
  • PB -  Zinc naphthenate
  • PC - Copper naphthenate

A PS Magazine Article (PS 677) as well as the DA Pam 742-1 22Nov2016 erroneously indicate that PA, PB & PC are  pentachlorophenol treated.

Although some vape oils may contain CBD oil, CBD, THC and/or synthetic cannabinoids, many vape oils do not disclose that they may contain illegal and/or potentially hazardous substances. Therefore, even consumers who may not be seeking products containing CBD oil, CBD, THC or other synthetic cannabinoids may unintentionally purchase and use them.

The US Army Public Health Center has sent out this powerpoint and the Army has released ALARACT 029/2018, HEALTH EFFECTS OF VAPE OILS CONTAINING UNKNOWN SUBSTANCES as guidance.
