Materiel Release

The ARDEC Materiel Release Program implements the Department of the Army's Materiel Release policy and requirements established in AR 700-142 (Type Classification, Materiel Release, Fielding and Transfer) to assure that materiel is safe, operationally suitable and logistically supportable before being issued to the troops. The Materiel Release process provides formal and disciplined management controls for the review and evaluation of materiel systems to assure that these systems comply with all applicable requirements prior to release for field issue, and that a suitable audit trail is established and maintained.
