FSG 34 metalworking machinery

To ensure consistency in its supply chain processes, the U.S. Department of Defense put into place a system that uniquely and permanently identifies the items that it purchases. This system, dubbed the National Stock Number (NSN), consists of 13 digits which are broken down into the 2 following identifying parts:

  1. Federal Supply Classification Group – The first 4 digits of the NSN identifies the Federal Supply Class code (FSCG).
  2. National Item Identification Number – The last 9 digits of the NSN identifies the National Item Identification Number (NIIN).

For example, an existing saw has a 13-digit NSN of 3405-00-007-9021. The FSCG is represented by 3405, and the NIIN by 000079021.

Furthermore, the FSCG and NIIN can be broken down even further into the following classifying parts:

In the above saw example, the FSG is represented by 34, and the FSC by 05.

In the above saw example, the NCB is represented by 00 (USA).

  1. Federal Supply Group – The first 2 digits of the FSCG identifies the Federal Supply Group (FSG).
  2. Federal Supply Code – The last 2 digits of the FSCG identifies the Federal Supply Code (FSC).
  3. National Codification Bureau – The first 2 digits of the NIIN identifies the National Codification Bureau (NCB) or NATO country code.
  4. Item Serial Number – The last 7 digits of the NIIN is merely an item serial number that does not follow an assignment pattern.
