With regard to maintenance department safety,
what does the Q/A division have a responsibility
to do at least monthly?
The Naval Aviation Maintenance
Discrepancy Reporting Program
NAMDRP is the method for reporting hazardous
deficiencies in material, publications, substandard
workmanship, and improper QA procedures.
The QA division manages the program and assists
the various work centers in determining if one or more
of these reports are needed for a maintenance problem
or occurrence within the activity. They are also
responsible to review all HMRs, EI requests, QDRs,
and TPDRs to ensure they are accurate, clear, concise,
and comprehensive. The work center supervisor
provides assistance to the QA representative with
information needed to complete the message request.
The QA division also initiates and maintains a
report log and assigns a report control number (RCN)
to each NAMDRP report. RCNs are assigned
sequentially throughout the calendar year, regardless
of the type of report.
The RCN is composed of 12 elements as follows:
Element (1) is the Service Designator code of the
originating activity. Refer to the OPNAVINST
4790.2 for Service Designator codes.
Elements (2) through (6) are the Unit
Identification Code (UIC) of the originating
activity, followed by a dash (-).
Elements (7) and (8) are a two-character
identification of the calendar year, followed by
a dash (-).
Elements (9) through (12) are the locally
assigned "control numbers." These numbers are
sequential, beginning with 0001 each calendar
The various reports required under the NAMDRP
are as follows:
Hazardous Material Report (HMR)
Engineering Investigation (EI) request
Quality Deficiency Report (QDR)
Technical Publication Deficiency Report
Aircraft Discrepancy Report (ADR)
The aviation safety officer, with assistance from
QA, reviews all correspondence concerning aircraft,
ground, flight, flight-related, and explosive mishaps.
All hands have a responsibility to be alert for
safety-related defects or discrepancies, which is the
primary reason for submitting each report.
If a report meets the criteria for an HMR and
warrants an EI Request, a Category (CAT) I QDR, or
TPDR, is sent as a dual message report.
Exceptions to the NAMDRP and its reporting
procedures are as follows:
