d. Recording Defects. All defects discovered during the inspection will be recorded using the applicable
specifics in DA Pamphlet 738-750 and TB 43-0002-43.
e. Conservation of Resources. To conserve time and labor, and to avoid evacuation to an intermediate
maintenance activity, unit/detachment commanders may designate, in writing, rigger personnel to accomplish
classification inspection of overage air delivery equipment.
f. Inspection Function Requirement. Normally, a technical/rigger-type inspection will be performed by air
delivery equipment maintenance personnel at a packing, rigging, or repair activity. The inspection of initial
receipt items will be performed as a separate function from packing or rigging activity; the item to be inspected
will be placed in proper layout on packing surface or suitable sized floor area. Should defect or damage be
discovered at any point during the inspection, the inspection will be terminated and the applicable item will be
processed and forwarded to repair activity. The repair activity, in turn, will conduct a technical/rigger-type
inspection that will be performed by only those parachute rigger personnel cited in AR 750-32. Any defect
discovered during a unit level repair activity inspection which exceeds the capability of that activity will require
the affected item to be evacuated to an intermediate maintenance function for further determination of
economic repair and repair accomplishment, if applicable.
Parachutes which are deemed unserviceable by a packing or
rigging activity will be rigger-rolled prior to being sent to a
