c. General Instructions.
The DA Form 2402 has four copies.
(a) Copy 1 is normally used as a receipt for the unit.
(b) Copy 2 is a receipt for the battalion level except for warranty claim
items. When the form is used to identify or show action completed on a warranty item
or claim exhibit, send copy 2 to the supporting warranty office. The warranty control
office will use this form to close out or complete any needed warranty actions or claims.
Copy 3 serves as a receipt for support units.
(d) Copy 4 stays with the item until it is repaired and issued. After the
repair is done, the tag identifies the item as fixed. This form accompanies each item
sent to supporting maintenance shops (DS, GS, depot, or contractor) for warranty
(e) Depending on the item, repair needed, and level of work, not all
copies may be needed.
Use a separate DA Form 2402 for each item.
