2. A final parts status, including a list of all parts
requests and dates received.
3. The number of man-hours expended in
correcting the casualty.
Your CANCEL CASREPs must include the reason
for cancellation. For example, if you cancel the
CASREP because an equipment will be repaired during
an availability, you must identify the scheduled
availability (location and date during which a casualty
is expected to be repaired) in an AMPN set immediately
following the CASUALTY set.
The addresses listed on CASREP messages are
those of commands, activities, and the like, that are
concerned with your units casualty. One or more may
be a command or activity that will expedite the
assistance you need. These addresses will vary with
major geographical locations, such as Pacific, Atlantic,
Caribbean, and Mediterranean. The senior operational
commander, immediate operational commander, and
cognizant type commander, or designated deputy, must
be action addressees on all CASREPs. The appropriate
aviation type commander must be included as an
information addressee on all CASREPs from naval air
stations and facilities. Special addresses, associated
with selected equipment types, are given in chapter 4 of
COMMON REPORTING ERRORS
A lot of time and effort goes into writing a CASREP
message. Ensure that the effectiveness of your CASREP
message is not degraded by some of the common
reporting errors. As a CASREP drafter, you should be
alert to these common errors:
1. Not listing the work center and job sequence
2. Incorrect determination of the readiness rating
3. Not listing the specific operational capability
that has been degraded.
4. Omitting the estimated time to repair (ETR) or
reporting it as unknown.
5. When parts are required but not on board,
leaving out the phrase Parts plus ( ) hours when
entering the ETR.
6. Not identifying the specific loss of capability
in the primary mission area; for example, loss of
one-third of liquid nitrogen production capability.
7. Using incomplete or incorrect message
8. Not providing UPDATE CASREPs every 30
days when the ETR is past (or known to be invalid),
when a significant change in CASREP status occurs, or
upon receipt of material required to correct the casualty.
9. Listing multiple pieces of equipment
(incorrectly) as a single CASREP; for example, NRS
12, 18, and 23 SRC20 UHF Transceivers.
10. Submitting multiple CASREPs as the same
casualty; for example, three separate CASREPs
submitted on the same radar power supply: one for a
defective transformer, one for a shorted SCR, and one
for a current limiting module.
11. Indicating a relationship with PMS that is not
correct; for example, the maintenance index page (MIP)
referenced is for different equipment; or the problem is
noted as having been discovered in the course of PMS,
whereas the circumstances and list of parts indicated that
a casualty had already occurred.
