RMKS/1. In anticipation of and consistent with expected OSD coordinated
revisions to reference (a), this message provides amplifying policy and
permanent exceptions to specific minimum Department of Defense (DoD)
antiterrorism (AT) Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) standards in reference
(a). Exceptions described in this message are effective immediately.
2. Policy. Any Navy project that requires adherence to reference (a) must be
planned and designed to the minimum DoD AT standards unless the applicable
geographic combatant commander (GCC) has established more stringent measures
in higher threat environments.
3. Exceptions. Requests to deviate above or below minimum DoD AT Standards
must be submitted and approved by Office of the Chief of Naval Operations
Shore Readiness Division (OPNAV N46) per references (b) through (d), unless
the deviation is to meet more stringent GCC measures, per paragraph 2, or to
enhance protection of defense critical infrastructure (DCI) as identified in
the Navy Critical Asset Management System. Deviations for higher GCC or DCI
measures may be approved by the installation commanding officer. For all
other projects located more than 50 feet on the interior side of a controlled
installation perimeter, the following permanent exceptions to reference (a)
a. Standard 1: Site plans and designs do not need to incorporate
minimum standoff distances, as defined in reference (a).
b. Standard 2: Unobstructed space must extend out 33 feet from the
building. Roadways and parking are allowed within this space.
c. Standard 6: Existing buildings do not need to incorporate
progressive collapse resistance, as defined in reference (a).
d. Standard 10: Window systems, to include glazing, framing,
connections, and supporting structural elements, do not have to be designed
for blast resistance. Neither dynamic analysis nor testing is required.
Subparagraph B-3.1.7 of reference (a) applies for all exterior glazing.
e. Standard 12: Door assemblies, to include doors, framing,
fasteners and anchorage, do not have to be designed or tested for blast
resistance. Swinging exterior doors for inhabited areas must open outward.
Exterior doors for inhabited areas that do not swing outward should be
designed per subparagraph B-3.3.3 of reference (a) to mitigate the potential
to be propelled into inhabited areas. Glazing in and around exterior doors
must comply with subparagraph 3d.
4. Implementation of this policy is mandatory for all projects planned for
FY20 and beyond. This policy does not relieve commanders of their
responsibility to identify and submit deviation requests to incorporate
unique AT measures associated with the project based on mission, conditions,
and terrorist threat.
5. This policy remains in effect until superseded by a revision of reference
