Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC)  Subscribe to Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC)

UFC documents provide planning, design, construction, sustainment, restoration, and modernization criteria, and apply to the Military Departments, the Defense Agencies, and the DoD Field Activities in accordance with DoD Directive 4270.5 (Military Construction) and USD(AT&L) Memorandum  dated 29 May 2002. UFC are distributed only in electronic media and are effective upon issuance. 

The United States Army Corps of Engineers (HQUSACE), Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), and the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) are responsible for administration of the UFC system. Points of contact and procedures for the development and maintenance UFC documents are prescribed in the latest edition of MIL-STD-3007.

UFCs that have been unified for use by all participating agencies have no alphabetical letter at the end of the document number. UFCs that are agency-specific have an alphabetical letter (or letters) at the end of the document. A document that has a letter "A" indicates USACE, an "N" indicates NAVFAC and an "F" indicates AFCEC. A combination of two letters indicates that the document is used by two agencies.

Facilities Criteria (FC) DESIGNATION

The "Facilities Criteria (FC)" designation has been adopted for criteria that are not applicable to all DoD Components. This is specific to facility-type documents only, for example, FC 4-721-10N "Navy and Marine Corps Unaccompanied Housing". Facilities Criteria (FC) provide functional requirements (i.e., defined by users and operational needs of a particular facility type). Differences in functional requirements between DoD Components may exist due to differences in policies and operational needs. FC are applicable only to the DoD Component(s) indicated in the title, and are intended for use with unified technical requirements published in DoD Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC).

See the DOD Engineering Criteria Status Report  for the list of UFCs that were formerly Agency-specific documents.
