4. Deviation from Documentation.
This authority to deviate from aircraft system technical maintenance documents is to be used only where
documentation calls out the use of MEK. No deviation for other cleaning processes and chemicals are authorized
without individual process approval from AMCOM. AMCOM will approve additional substitutes for MEK as they
are qualified. At that time, changes to documentation will be published in the TMs and DMWRs for AMCOM
5. AMCOM Environmental Technology Team Hotline.
AMCOM continues to reduce the Army's dependency on Hazardous Materials (Hazmat) and Ozone Depleting
Chemicals (ODC) as a business practice. Maintenance documentation is being revised upon substitute
application approval from responsible organizations within AMCOM. Until documentation is revised, the AMCOM
Environmental Technology Team (ETT) Hotline is available to assist in the selection/approval of substitutes for
specific MEK applications. Your organization may request ODC and Hazmat assistance from the ETT Hotline.
The ETT is also a source for application specific approval for use of other products as replacements to ODCs and
other hazardous materials.
