This standard establishes requirements, formats and procedures for the preparation, submission and approval or disapproval of engineering change proposals (ECPs), utilizing DD Form 1693, and requests for deviations and waivers utilizing DD Form 1694.
The purpose of this standard is to establish configuration control requirements and procedures applicable to the acquisition and modification of items procured by the Department of Defense (DoD).
It is intended that this standard be applied to contracts or orders for procurement of the following:
a. multi-application or standard items which were not developed as subvisions of a specific system
b. items fabricated in accordance with a mandatory detail design which was not developed by the fabricator; and
c. privately developed items (e.g., commercial off-the-shelf items), when the procuring activity has determined that the application of change control to such items is necessary and that the short form ECP is applicable
