    (1) Accountability requirements to track uniquely by regulation; e.g., small arms, nuclear weapons-rd.  Apply the highest levels of materiel accountability and asset visibility to the stewardship of critical safety items (CSI) and controlled inventory items (CII). 
    DoDM 4140.01-V1, Supply Chain Materiel Management Procedures, February 10, 2014, Enclosure 2, page7:
    DoD materiel managers will follow special procedures for identification, handling, and control of CSI and CII including nuclear weapons-related materiel (NWRM) commensurate with the risk of materiel release as described in Volume 11 of this manual.
    (1) Provide unique item level traceability for all items meeting the criteria established by DoDI 8320.04 (Reference (e)) and Volume 11 of this manual.

    (2) Manage small arms, light weapons, non-nuclear missiles and rockets, arms, ammunition and explosives, NWRM, and conventional munitions as special types of materiel in the DoD supply chain and participate in the Joint Small Arms and Light Weapons Coordinating Group as specified in Volume 11 of this manual.

    5. Use of Life-Cycle Item Management (LCIM) DATA
    a. Objectives for LCIM Data Usage. SIM capabilities will be developed and structured to provide LCIM data about specific items and item populations, including data useful in:
    (13) Providing visibility and control of intensively managed items (e.g., small arms or nuclear weapons-related materiel).
