Do you want to introduce your Corrosion Prevention & Control (CPC) product to the DoD?

This DoD web-based Product Introduction Process (PIP) is designed to assist suppliers in matching their product(s) to specifications and standards currently used by the DoD for Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) and to facilitate the introduction of these CPC products to DoD agencies. The PIP was developed as a resource to: 1) establish a single point source of information on product introduction; 2) provide DoD CPC specifications and standards information and resources; 3) facilitate a process to identify, categorize, and assess pertinent corrosion specifications; 4) provide a resource to explain the current introduction paths for products covered by existing specifications or standards; and 5) establish a streamlined product evaluation process to facilitate the introduction of new products or product applications that are not covered by existing specifications or standards.

How does DoD specify technology products?

The Defense Standardization Program (DSP) under DoD 4120.24M defines how products are specified and establishes the qualification program. The Specifications and Standards Tool includes categorized listings of CPC specifications used by the DoD and will help you find potential specifications or standards that your product or technology may comply to.


What is the outcome of this process?

This Product Introduction Process (PIP) facilitates the identification of your product or application along with a set of potential DoD specification(s) and standard(s) that your product or application may conform with to help provide you with an "Equal opportunity to compete." The PIP entails completing a Product Information Form (PIF) which includes 1) a general description of your product or application, 2) identification of potential applicable CPC specifications and standards, and 3) information to determine your particular path forward for the selected specification type(s) to introduce your product or application to the DoD.

NOTE: This PIP is not designed as a marketing tool and does not qualify your product to any specification or standard, nor does it guarantee procurement of your product by any DoD agency.
