A central repository for SRC cards has been established at the Naval Aviation Maintenance Office (NAVAVNMAINTOFF). The function of this office is to receive misplaced and canceled cards, copies of all updated cards after SDLM or rework, and copies of all new cards generated for the new SRC items. The central repository responds to all requests for information regarding SRC cards. The request for this data maybe made by telephone, message, or letter, consistent with the priority requirements for information.
When components are shipped between activities, the following procedures must be followed to reduce the possibility of loss or damage to the SRC card:
The SRC card is inserted and sealed in a plastic, return material document envelope, and is not to be removed by anyone except the user or recipient. No other documents are be placed in the same envelope with the SRC card.
If the component is placed in a box or container for shipment, the SRC card (in the envelope) is attached to the component before it is put in the box or container.
If the component is shipped in an open crate or without a container, special attention must be given to attaching the envelope containing the SRC card to the component.
The requirement that an SRC card be maintained for an aeronautical component is directed by the latest edition of NAVAIRINST 4790.3. This direction is provided in the NAVAIR 01-XXXX-6 series of periodic maintenance requirements manual and periodic maintenance information cards (PMICs). Your PMICs might be under TMINS, in which case the publication number would be A1-XXXXX-MRC-000.
Original SRC cards are initiated as follows:
SRC cards for components installed on, or delivered with, major aeronautical equipments (such as aircraft and engines) are the responsibility. of the activity accepting such major equipment for the Navy. The delivery point ensures the SRC card(s) is/are copied, and that a copy is forwarded to the central repository at the NAVAVNMAINTOFF.
SRC cards for new components received into the Navy supply system are the responsibility of the original activity accepting such components for the Navy. The original activity forwards a copy of all SRC cards to the central repository at the NAVAVNMAINTOFF. Upon completion of rework, the SRC card reflecting the current status of the component is copied, and a copy is forwarded by the NAVAVNDEPOT to the central repository at the NAVAVNMAINTOFF. This procedure applies to components reworked individually and concurrently as part of an aircraft rework process. The SRC card should be attached to components returned to the supply system as spares or inserted in the aircraft logbook, as appropriate.
When SRC cards become damaged or mutilated, the activity having current custody initiates a new card, and all information is transcribed to the new card. When notified that SRC cards are no longer required, through changes to the applicable NAVAIR 01-XXXX-6 manuals, reporting custodians will annotate the affected SRC card(s) to show the deletion authorization, and forward the card(s) to the central repository at the NAVAVNMAINTOFF for purging from the master file.
Card maintenance is important, and all of the required data should be entered. When a card contains no space for additional entries, a new card is prepared, and both accompany the component until such time as the cards are consolidated at rework. Entries must be typed or plainly printed in ink. The SRC card has five sections in which data is entered. A description of and instructions for making entries in each section are listed in the following paragraphs.
Nomenclature - Enter the noun name of the item.
WUC - Enter the work unit code of the item.
FSCM - Enter the five-digit manufacturer's code.
Replacement interval - Enter the hours, days, counts, etc., after which the component must be removed and replaced.
Replacement due - This entry is computed when the item is installed and reflects the total count (hours, starts, landings, etc.) on the aircraft/equipment or the date when the item mustContinue Reading
