MILITARY SPECIFICATIONS

Military specifications are issued by the Department of Defense and it is mandatory that all
work performed for that department be covered by the applicable military specification.
Military specifications are identified by a letter-number designation and the title. An example is: MIL-E-22200/1E - Electrodes, Welding , Mineral Covered, Iron Powder, Low
Hydrogen, Medium and High Tensile Strength, As-Welded or Stress Relieved Applications.

In the example, MIL designates that it is a Military specification. The first letter E

stands for Electrode which is the significant word in the title. The number 22200/1 is the

serial number of the specification; the letter E at the end designates the revision letter and
will change as further revisions are made. The underlined portion is the title of the specification.

Glossary

A Military specification may cover only one or a number of electrodes or wires.

When the specification includes more than one item, a type designation is necessary. As
