FSG 36 special industry machinery

To expedite the flow of parts, the U.S. Department of Defense put into place a system that uniquely and permanently identifies the items that it purchases. This system, named the National Stock Number (NSN), consists of 13 digits which are broken down into the 2 following 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 laminating machine has a 13-digit NSN of 36-70-01-0647967. The FSCG is represented by 3670, and the NIIN by 010647967.

Additionally, the FSCG and NIIN can be broken down even further into the next classifying subgroups:

In the above laminating machine example, the FSG is represented by 36, and the FSC by 70.

In the above laminating machine example, the FSG is represented by 36, and the FSC by 70.

  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.
