These restrictions are imposed on the cognizant design activity to ensure procurement of the only item(s) known as a result of test or evaluation to be satisfactory for the stated critical application. Includes only those drawings which meet the definition for Source Control Drawing in MIL-STD-100. (Applicable only to type 1, 1B, 2, 4 and 4B item identifications.)
  • RNCC 2: Definitive Government Specification or Standard Designator Reference::A part number, style number, or type designator included in or developed in accordance with a Government specification or standard which has the effect of fully identifying an item of supply. This code shall also be used for a Government specification or standard which, although not including part numbers, style numbers, or type designators, covers a single item of supply. These reference numbers may be coded with Reference Number Variation Code (RNVC) 1 in accordance with volume 2, paragraph 2.9.2.n.(4).

This code shall be used for non-definitive Government specifications and standard references and non-definitive part numbers, type designators, and style numbers included therein which are coded with RNVC 1. (Includes the specification number of those specifications for which type designation is used as code 2. Excludes professional association, industrial association, or manufacturer's specification or standard reference which shall be coded 3, and specification control drawings as defined in MIL-STD-100 which shall be coded 7.)
  • RNCC 5: Secondary Reference::Any additional number, other than a primary number (codes 1,2,3,4) informative reference (code 6) or vendor item drawing reference (code 7) assigned to an item of production or supply by a commercial or Government organization, which represents the same item of production or supply to which the National Stock Number (NSN) was assigned. The reference number may have had an RNCC of 1, 2, 3, 4 or 7 but has since been replaced in the item-of-supply concept of the NSN by another primary number. Includes additional numbers assigned by the design control organization; superseded or discontinued reference numbers which may have resulted from: a manufacturer's change in numbering system; the manufacturer no longer produces the item or is no longer technically approved source; the manufacturer or supplier for that number is out of business. NOTE: An RNCC 5 reference with a Reference Number Variation Code (RNVC) of 2 shall not be added to an NSN with a Standard Military Drawing (SMD) or Military Specification coded RNCC-RNVC 2-2 unless the reference is registered on the Qualified Products List (QPL) for the SMD or Mil Spec.

Additionally, there is not direct relationship of the reference number to the NSN other than a Service/Agency individual decision. (RNCC shall be used only in conjunction with RNVC 1.)
  • RNCC D: Drawing Number Reference::A number assigned by a design activity to a drawing or other technical documentation which identifies a drawing/document that is related to an item of supply or production but does not qualify for assignment of codes 1,3,5,7, or C. Code D reference numbers will not be used in item-of-supply determinations
