A container inspection program, therefore, helps ensure that no injury to person or damage to property occurs from a structural failure or deficiency. This handbook provides inspection criteria and procedures to be used when visually examining intermodal containers. Following the criteria and procedures contained herein will enable personnel to identify containers that are serviceable and safe for loading and shipping. This handbook applies to the selection of any commercially owned or military owned intermodal container meeting the standards of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and certified under the provisions of the International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC). This handbook is specifically used by worldwide civilian and military personnel responsible for inspecting and selecting serviceable intermodal containers and ISO Shelters for shipment of Department of Defense (DOD) materiel. Certain portions of the criteria contained within this handbook are segregated into two parts. The basic part of the criteria applies to containers used only for shipment of general cargoes. The second part provides additional criteria that must also be followed to qualify containers for shipment of United Nations (UN) Hazard Class 1 explosive materials. This handbook provides a variety of helpful illustrations. While some illustrations depict acceptable container repairs, this handbook is not to be used as a standard for performing such repairs. Beneficial comments (recommendations, additions, deletions), and any other pertinent data that may be of use in improving this document, should be addressed to: Director, U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center; ATTN: SOSAC-AST, McAlester OK 74501-9002; by using the DD Form 1426 appearing at the end of this document or by letter, or by e-mail to sosac-ast@dac.army.mil.
