(figs. 6-17 and 6-18). SRC cards are maintained as part
of the aircraft logbook, AESR, or MSR as long as the
component is installed in the aircraft or equipment.
When the component is removed from the aircraft or
equipment, the SRC card should be closed out, and the
card accompanies the component. The card is also used
to record the maintenance history on any item that
requires monitoring, tracking, and trending of failure
data by the CFA via the PMIC.
The ATCM at COMNAVAIRSYSCOM maintains
the central repository for aviation SRC cards. Copies of
SRC cards updated after SDLM or rework and all new
cards generated for new SRC card items are sent to this
repository. You should forward misplaced and
canceled SRC cards to this repository. This central
repository responds to all requests for information
regarding SCR cards. You should request this data by
telephone, message, or letter consistent with the
priority requirements for the information.
When components are shipped between activities,
the following procedures should 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 to 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 the component is put in the box or
container. Do not attach the SRC card to
the outside of the shipping container.
If the component is shipped in an open crate
or without a container, make sure the
envelope that contains the SRC card is
securely attached to the component.
Directions for maintaining SRC cards are in the
NAVAIR 01-XXXX-6 series of PMICs when the
PMICs are under the NAVAIR Publication Numbering
System. When PMICs are under the Technical Manual
Identification Numbering System, you should follow
directions provided for publications in the
A1-XXXXX-MRC-000 series of PMICs.
NOTE: The Xs in the above publication numbers
stand for aircraft or manufacturer designators and vary

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 that
accepts such major equipment for the Navy.
The delivery point ensures the SRC cards
are copied, and that a copy is forwarded to
the ATCM Central Repository at COM-
SRC cards for new components received
into the Navy supply system are the
responsibility of the original activity that
accepts such components for the Navy. The
original activity forwards a copy of all SRC
cards to the ATCM Central Repository at
An SRC card is kept current during rework. Upon
completion of rework, the SRC card that reflects the
current status of the component is copied, and a copy is
forwarded by the NADEP to the central repository.
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 that has current custody initiates a new
card, and transcribes all information to the new card.
When notified that SRC cards are no longer required
via a change to the applicable NAVAIR 01-XXXX-6
manuals, reporting custodians should annotate the
affected SRC cards to show the deletion authorization.
Reporting custodians should then forward the cards to
the central repository 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 should be
prepared. First, verify that the Identification Data
section, including the Replacement Interval and
Replacement Due blocks, is complete and accurate.
Replacement intervals are outlined in applicable
PMICs. Replacement due is computed at the time of
the installation of the component and equals total hours
or counts on the aircraft or equipment plus the
replacement interval minus the hours or counts on the
