Summary. This regulation provides policy and procedures for issuing military ID cards and implementing the individual logistic support (ILS) privileges that may be offered to various categories of military and civilian personnel according to the NATO Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA), the Supplementary Agreement to the NATO SOFA for Germany, and related international agreements.

Summary of Change. This revision incorporates changes in paragraphs 3-3, 14-4(a)(11), 16-3e, and 17-6c(10). Specifically, paragraph 3-3 has been revised to indicate that foreign national employees and foreign military personnel who require a Common Access Card for computer use associated with their DOD employment or affiliation are not authorized the full range of individual logistic support. Paragraphs 14-4(a)(11), 16-3e, and 17‑6c(10) have been revised to state that a money order or cashier’s check from a military banking facility will be made payable to a U.S. Government agency. An administrative change has been made to the Army in Europe Publishing System website.

Applicability. Unless otherwise specifically stated, this regulation applies primarily to U.S. Army personnel in Germany. When consistent with international agreements and arrangements, this regulation applies in other countries where the Army in Europe is authorized to provide ILS.

Supplementation. Organizations will not supplement this regulation without IMCOM-Europe (IMEU-HMT) approval.

Forms. This regulation prescribes AE Form 600-700A, AE Form 600-700B, AE Form 600-700C, AE Form 600-700D, and AE Form 600-700E. AE and higher level forms are available through the Army in Europe Publishing System at https://aepubs.army.mil/ae/public/index.aspx.

Records Management. Records created as a result of processes prescribed by this publication must be identified, maintained, and disposed of according to AR 25-400-2. Record titles and descriptions are available on the Army Records Information Management System website at https://www.arims.army.mil.

Suggested Improvements. The proponent of this regulation is IMCOM-Europe (IMEU-HMT, DSN 379-6647). Users may suggest improvements to this regulation by sending DA Form 2028 to IMCOM-Europe (IMEU-HMT), Unit 29055, APO AE 09081-9055.
