A CORRECT CASREP (fig. 13-8) is submitted when equipment that has been the subject of a casualty report is repaired and back in operational condition. CASREPs that report the correction of a casualty situation should include the following information in an AMPN set:

1. The delay, expressed in hours, in correcting the casualty because of parts unavailability caused by the supply system

2. A final parts status, including a list of all parts requested and the dates they were received

3. The number of man-hours expended in correcting the casualty

Figure 13-8.-Example of a CORRECT CASREP message.


A CANCEL CASREP (fig. 13-9) is submitted when equipment that has been the subject of casualty reporting is scheduled to be repaired during an overhaul period or other scheduled availability. Outstanding casualties that are not to be repaired during such availability should not be canceled and remain subject to normal follow-up procedures. The reason for cancellation (i.e., the scheduled availability, including location and date during which a casualty is expected to be repaired) should be identified in an AMPN set immediately following the CASUALTY set.

As you can see by the example CASREP messages, the addressees listed are commands and activities that are concerned with your unit's casualty. They may be the commands or activities that will expedite any assistance or support required. These addressees will vary with major geographical locations (Pacific, Atlantic, Mediterranean, etc.). The senior operational commander, immediate operational commander, and cognizant type commander should be the action addressees on all CASREPs. The appropriate aviation type commander should be included as an information addressee on all CASREPs from naval air stations and facilities. Certain other addressees are required to be included as information addressees when the CASREP deals with specific equipment types. These addressees are identified in NWP 10-1-10.

You should use the appropriate AIG (address indicating group) for information addresses. Other special action addressees and information addressees dictated by fleet commanders, type, or other operational commanders will be included. The communications and operations officers of your unit can provide you with the required addressees you will need when submitting a CASREP.


A casualty category is associated with each reported equipment casualty. Categories 2,3, and 4 (category 1 is not used) reflect the operational urgency or priority of the casualty. The casualty category, although not a readiness rating, is directly related to the unit's equipment readiness (this information is explained in OPNAVINST C3501.66, UNITREP) in those primary and/or secondary missions that are affected by the casualty.

The casualty category (2, 3, or 4) is based upon the specific casualty situation being reported and may not necessarily agree with the unit's overall readiness status. The casualty category is reported in the CASUALTY set and is required in all CA-SREPS.

The selected casualty category should never be worse than a mission area M-rating reported through UNITREP for the primary missions affected by the casualty. Table 13-2 shows the criteria for determining the casualty category.
