9-11. ADDITIONAL INSPECTION CRITERIA (CONT).
(2) DD Form 2282 Decal. A CSC reinspection due date (month and year) must be marked on the CSC
plate. A DD Form 2282 Decal should be used for this purpose. When performing a CSC examination, the DoD
inspector will apply a DD Form 2282 decal if the container is found to be acceptable. This decal is not required on a
new container since the first reinspection due date must be inscribed on the original CSC plate. The first CSC
reinspection due date assigned to a newly manufactured container provides a maximum interval of 5 years. Each
subsequent CSC examination is only current for a maximum interval of 30 months. A CSC reinspection should
always be performed upon completion of maintenance and a new decal should then be applied to indicate a new due
date at 30 months away. A container is unacceptable for loading with cargo if the DD Form 2282 decal indicates
that CSC reinspection is due within 60 days or less. CSC Reinspection Decals (DD Forms 2282) can be obtained
from Container Fleet Division, HQ MTMCEA, Bayonne, New Jersey, 07002-5302, DSN 247-5126 or (201)
(3) Inspection Report. Inspection of DoD owned containers or containers under the maintenance purview
of the DoD must also be reported on the proper Service form such as DA Form 2404, "Equipment Inspection and
Maintenance Worksheet". A copy of the inspection report must be completed and forwarded to the Container
Control Office of the owning service. Inspection reports for containers in the Common User Fleet must be sent to
the Joint Container Control Office (JCCO) at the following address: Commander, Military Traffic Management
Command Eastern Area, ATTN: MTEOP-ITC, Bayonne, NJ 07002-5302. Note: Centralized control of this
documentation is important since the law (CFR 49 part 452.3b) requires that the container inspection report must be
made available to the U.S. Coast Guard upon their request.
d. Recommended Inspection Sequence. Inspection should be performed on the container while empty.
Although any sequence of inspection is permissible, the sequence of the inspection contained herein is
recommended and coincides with the checklists provided in this paragraph. A complete examination must be
performed prior to acceptance. Even if cause for rejection is identified, a complete inspection of DoD owned
containers under the maintenance purview of the DoD must be performed so a complete report of container
condition can be provided in accordance with the Inspection Report.
(1) Markings and Data Plates. Check for appropriate markings and data plates. Annotate the ISO owner
code serial number and the existing CSC reinspection date on the Inspection Checklist.
(2) Overall Configuration. Check for any distortion of the overall configuration great enough to preclude
proper engagement of handling/lifting equipment, mounting and securing on chassis or vehicle, or insertion into the
cell of a ship. If container alignment is in question, use a measuring tape to check dimensions in accordance with
