Conversion of the National Stock Numbers (NSN’s) to the Technical Manual Identification Number
System (TMINS) is according to NAVSEA N0000-00-IDX-000/TMINS, Application Guide and Index for the Navy Standard Technical Manual Identification Numbering System (TMINS) . The NSN for a four-digit
chapter is assigned a TMIN upon revision and publication as a three-digit chapter.
ADVANCE CHANGE NOTICES
An Advance Change Notice (ACN) is prepared as an addendum to a chapter of the NSTM when
there is insufficient time to prepare and publish a permanent (formal) change. ACN’s are distributed to NSTM holders on record having a need for the information. ACN’s are now available on the CD-ROM. The ACN’s are incorporated into the text in each applicable chapter. Formal chapter changes and chapter revisions incorporate outstanding ACN’s. The assigned ACN number provides dual information: a number capable of serialization, separated by a slash, and the prospective change level to a chapter. For example, the first ACN issued to an NSTM Chapter after change B is designated ACN 1/C. ACN number assignment and distribution are controlled by NAVSEA. Copies of NSTM ACN’s are available upon request by contacting the NSDSA, (805) 228-0468 or
