Distribution Requirements Tables are contained in NAVAIR 00-25DRT-1. TECHNICAL DIRECTIVES Technical directives (TDs) are letter-type publications that are primarily used for directing the accomplishment and recording of modifica- tions and onetime inspections of weapons systems and equipment. TDs are issued as formal letter- type and message-type directives. A formal TD is a document issued as a change, an amendment, or a revision, and it is published by letter. A message-type TD is a document issued as a bulletin, an interim change, or an amendment or revision, and it is published by message to expedite dissemination. A change is a document containing instruc- tions and information that directs the accomplish- ment and recording of a material change, a repositioning, a modification, or an alteration in the characteristics of the equipment to which it applies. A bulletin is a message-type document containing instructions for the inspection of weapons systems and equipment to determine the existence of specified conditions and what actions should be taken. A rapid action minor engineer- ing change (RAMEC) is a message-type TD that provides for an expeditious action on minor changes that offer significant advantages to the operating forces. The latest edition of NAVAIR 00-25-300 contains the policies and procedures governing the TD system. Message-type TDs are technical documents used to dispense urgent action information. Because of their urgency, they are released in naval message format to a preselected distribution list. Instructions that direct onetime inspections are issued as bulletins. All interim changes (except RAMECs) are superseded by a formal TD to maintain proper configuration control. Interim changes (except bulletins and RAMECs, which are not normally formalized) will be superseded within 180 days by a formal TD of the same title, number, and subject prepared in accordance with MIL-D-81992. NAVAIR, which has logistic support cognizance of the weapons systems/equipment, is responsible for ensuring the issuance of the formal technical directive. METHODS OF UPDATING TECHNICAL DIRECTIVES A TD may be updated by issuance of an amendment, which is a document consisting of information that clarifies, corrects, adds to, deletes from, makes minor changes in require- ments to, or cancels an existing TD. A maximum of three amendments maybe applied to any TD, and each one remains in effect until rescinded or superseded by a revision. Amendments may not be used to cancel another amendment. Another way to update a TD is to use a revision. A revision is a completely new edition of an existing change or bulletin. It supersedes the original directive or revision and all existing amendments. RESCISSION/CANCELLATION OF TECHNICAL DIRECTIVES Rescission is the process by which the TD is removed from active files after all require- ments have been completely incorporated. Final rescission action is directed in the TD index, NAVSUP 2002 (microfiche). All activities maintaining active technical libraries maintain applicable documents until the TD is deleted from the TD index. Cancellation is the process by which TDs are removed from active files when it is determined that a previously issued TD is not to be incorporated. Cancellation action is directed by issuance of an amendment to the TD. The cancellation amendment explicitly states the required configuration of each article initially specified for modification; that is, whether installed modifications are to remain installed or are to be removed. The TD control center is located at NATSF. The filing of TDs was discussed previously. Detailed instructions on TD incorporation and documentation are given in chapter 4 of this rate training manual. PRIORITY OF TECHNICAL DIRECTIVES Technical directives are assigned a category according to the importance and urgency of accomplishing the work involved. Each technical directive is assigned to one of the following categories: immediate, urgent, routine, or record purpose. The category immediate action is assigned to directives that are issued to correct safety conditions that, if uncorrected, could result in fatal or serious injury to personnel, extensive damage, or destruction of property. Immediate action directives involve the discontinued use 3-24
