Turn-In Instructions

Metalworking Machinery (MM)

DLA Aviation is the Consolidated Materiel Manager (CMM) for MM. MM in FSCs 3405 through 3460 are considered reparable when the acquisition value of the property is equal to or greater than $5,000 and the machines are in SCC greater than “H.”

Generating Activities Responsibilities

When authorized for disposal by the CMM, the document number assigned to either format of the original report of excess will be perpetuated on the DTID for transfer to the DLA Disposition Services site.

A copy of the disposition instructions received from DLA Aviation and two copies of the DD Form 1342, when applicable, will be attached to the DTID. DLA Disposition Services sites will then process the MM as normal excess.

Attach a copy of the PCB laboratory analysis and certification statement to the DTID. MM which was manufactured before July 1984 must be accompanied by a copy of the PCB laboratory analysis proving that it contains less than 50 ppm PCBs, and a signed and dated “Generating Activity Certification” form.

MM which was manufactured after June 1984 will be accepted without a PCB laboratory analysis, if:

(a) The date of manufacture is stamped on the machine itself, or otherwise clearly identified on an attached manufacturer's data plate.

(b) The generator provides a signed and dated certification document containing the statement: “I certify that this metalworking machine contains zero or less than 50 ppm PCBs, based upon the fact that it was manufactured after June 30, 1984, and to the best of my knowledge, no PCBs were ever added before or after taking possession of this machine.” Attach a copy of the certification statement to the DTID.
