An asterisk (*) following the periodicity code indicates a Safety of Ship item and requires the ship/or user to comply with reference (a).
Maintenance requirements with calendar periodicities greater than every 60 months may be developed for applicable ship classes in extended operability programs up to the length of the maintenance cycle. These periodicities must be evenly divisible by six months (i.e., 66M, 72M, 78M, 84M, etc.).
R- Situation Requirement
U - Unscheduled Maintenance
Inactive Equipment Maintenance (IEM)
LU - Lay-Up
PM - Periodic Maintenance
SU - Start-Up
OT - Operational Test
The periodicity code also includes a number for specific identification. When more than one MRC of the same periodicity exists in the same MRC set, the MRCs in most cases, will be numbered consecutively, e.g., "D-1," "D-2," "D-3," or "M-1," "M-2," etc. An existing MRC may be reapplied to a revised MIP even though the periodicity code of the reapplied MRC may not fall within the normally sequential numeric periodicity codes. For example, W-1, W-2, W-3, W-6 may appear on a MIP, where W-6 was an existing MRC that was reapplied to this equipment. Technically, valid MRCs will not be reprinted merely to change the periodicity code number. Non-sequential numbers will not affect scheduling or management control.
