Demilitarization (DEMIL) Codes

Department of Defense (DOD) Demilitarization (DEMIL) Coding Management Office (DDCMO)

DEMIL code indicates the degree of required physical destruction, identifies items requiring specialized capabilities or procedures, and identifies items which do not require DEMIL but may require Trade Security Controls. It is used throughout the life-cycle to identify control requirements required before release from DoD control.  The DEMIL codes below are listed as the Highest Severity to the Lowest Severity in DEMIL coding. DEMIL Integrity Code appear adjacent to the DEMIL Code in FLIS that identify the validity of an item’s DEMIL code. For additional information on DEMIL codes or DEMIL Integrity Codes, see DOD 4160.28 DEMIL Program or DOD 4100.39M FLIS Manual.
