Abstract : According to Army regulations, one retail authorized stockage list (AsL) will not be a backup to another retail ASL. An exception to this general policy is made, however, when the installation is responsible for general support maintenance of the items. In such cases, Army regulations allow the installation AsL to be the backup source of supply to units (e.g. divisions, nondivisional units, separate brigades, reserve, and National Guard units). When an item on the installation's ASL is received at the installation for repair, the installation issues a serviceable item to the unit, repairs the unserviceable item, and then keeps it in installation stock. The items repaired and stocked at the installation are referred to as reparable exchange (Rx) items. Many of these items, which include such things as engines, transmissions, and other major components used on track and wheeled vehicles and aircraft, are also stocked at the divisions collocated at these installations.
