Use. DA Forms 2407/2407-1 are used as maintenance requests for:
Requesting support maintenance.
Repairs beyond the unit's authorized capability or capacity.
Application of Military Work Orders (MWOs).
Fabrication or assembly of items.
Reporting work on DA-directed items under an approved sampling plan.
Initiating work requests that may become warranty claim actions.

and tactical equipment.
Requesting an estimated cost of damage (ECOD) or technical inspection to determine the
serviceability/repairability of an item prior to repair or turn-in for replacement.
General Instructions. A separate DA Form 2407 will be filled out on each item reported under AR 700-
138. A separate form will also be filled out on each component of an item reported under AR 700-138, when
submitted separate from end item. You may combine items with the same make, model, and NSN on a
single DA Form 2407 when they are not reported under AR 700-138. DA Form 2407-1 may be used when
more room is needed. Items turned in for classification will be on separate forms. Send a copy of DA Form
2408-5 (Equipment Modification Record) with the equipment to support maintenance. The organization
asking for maintenance fills out Section 1 of the DA Form 2407 and sends all copies of the form with the
equipment. The support unit fills in Block 24 and puts a local work order number on the form. Copy 1 then
goes back to the organization as a receipt for the equipment. The unit returns Copy 1 when the equipment is
fixed and ready for pickup. Disposition involves retaining Copy 1 and destroying it when the equipment is
returned to the unit.
