1-3. CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC).
a. Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that any
corrosion problems with this item be reported so that the problem can be corrected and improvements made
to prevent the problem in future items.
b. While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can also include deterioration of other
materials, such as rubber and plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swelling or breaking of the materials may
be a corrosion problem.
c. If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using Standard Form 368, Product Quality Deficiency
Report. Using key words such as "rust", "deterioration", or "cracking" will ensure that the information is
identified as a CPC problem. The form should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 738-750.
