Refer to paragraph 4-6 of this AFKAG.

1-11b, Note (2). LMMK disseminates status information on COMSEC systems to
AFSPACECOM COMSEC accounts using AIG 10953.

cally listed. Ensure OIs cover other required COMSEC procedures (as deemed

ing authority over the COMSEC manager.

through their local training monitor to HQ AFSPACECOM/LKS, no later than 1 Sep

4-3h(3)(Added). Classified ALC-4 COMSEC material.

4-5a. Page checks are required for all documents when only one copy per edition
is received.

4-6. All COMSEC aids issued to users must be destroyed by the users, except for
surplus aids which will be turned over to the account for disposition.

4-7a. Responsible officials (NCOIC, Shift Supervisor, etc.) may grant an exten-
sion of up to 24 hours only under emergency situations (i.e., after duty hours).
In all other cases, the extension must be granted by the local commander and
must be in writing.

4-10. Disregard the term "monthly destruction" since it is now considered
routine/regular destruction. The original destruction certificate prepared by
the CRO must be forwarded to the COMSEC account to be filed in the account's
user folder. The CRO retains a copy to be filed in their user folder. Destruc-
tion certificates prepared by the account and/or the CRO must be numbered con-
secutively throughout each calendar year (i.e., D-01-92, D-02-92, etc.) with
each using their own series of numbers. Destruction of all COMSEC aids must be
witnessed.

4-13a. Disregard the term "monthly destruction reports", since these reports no
longer exist. At the user, the CRO or alternate signs the destruction certifi-
cate as the destruction official.

4-13b(2). Since the destruction official at the user level must be the CRO or
alternate, the grade requirements of AFSSI-4005 must be met.

5-3. In a user facility (i.e., open office environment) where COMSEC material
is continuously secured in a safe when not being used, COMSEC access begins at
the safe.

5-3b. At the user facility, the CRO is responsible for verifying clearances for
persons on their access list.

5-3e. If COMSEC access begins at the safe, the AF Form 1109 must be maintained
inside the safe.

5-4e(2)(c). Inventory keys using the SF 701, Activity Security Checklist.

5-5. All AFSPACECOM COMSEC accounts must perform daily security checks using
the SF 701, Activity Security Checklist (or approved equivalent.)

6-4h. Task cards are not required if deemed unnecessary by the OPR of the EAP
and the COMSEC manager.
