Section 20: Condition Codes

The following codes will be used to indicate condition of property in accordance with FAR 45.606-5(4):

Supply Condition Codes

A New, used, repaired, or reconditioned property; serviceable and issuable to all customers without limitations or restrictions; includes material with remaining shelf life of more than six months.
B New, used, repaired, or reconditioned property; serviceable and issuable or for its intended purpose but restricted from issue to specific units, activities, or geographical areas because of its limited usefulness or short service-life expectancy; includes material and remaining shelf life of three to six months.
F Economically repairable property which requires repair, overhaul or reconditioning; includes repairable items which are radioactively contaminated.
H Property which has been determined to be unserviceable and does not meet the repair criteria.
S Scrap. Material that has no value except for its basic material content.
X Salvage. Property that has some value in excess of its basic material content, but repair or re­habilitation to use for the originally intended purpose is clearly impractical. Repair for any use would exceed 65% of the original acquisition cost.

Disposal Condition Codes

1 Unused-good. Unused property that is usable without repairs and identical or interchangeable with new items from normal supply sources.
2 Unused-fair. Unused property that is usable without repairs, but is deteriorated or damaged to the extent that utility is somewhat impaired.
3 Unused-poor. Unused property that is usable without repairs, but is considerably deteriorated or damaged. Enough utility remains to classify the property better than salvage.
4 Used-good. Used property that is usable without repairs and most of its useful life remains.
5 Used-fair. Used property that is usable without repairs, but is somewhat worn or deteriorated and may soon require repairs.
6 Used-poor. Used property that may be used without repairs, but is considerably worn or deteriorated to the degree that remaining utility is limited or major repairs will soon be required.
7 Repairs required-good. Required repairs are minor and should not exceed 15% of original acquisition cost.
8 Repairs required-fair. Required repairs are considerable and are estimated to range from 16% to 40% of original acquisition cost.
9 Repairs required-poor. Required repairs are major because property is badly damaged, worn, or deteriorated, and are estimated to range from 41% to 65% of original acquisition cost.
S Scrap. Material that has no value except for its basic material content.
X Salvage. Property has some value in excess of its basic material content, but repair or rehabili­tation to use for the originally intended purpose is clearly impractical. Repair for any use would exceed 65% of the original acquisition cost.
