What are End Item Codes?
Each reportable single-equipment end item has an assigned EIC; a unique identifier designating
certain equipment items for the capture of supply-support demand data.
Equipment that does not have an assigned EIC cannot be added to the Army List of Reportable Items/Systems.
The first position of the EIC identifies the National Inventory Control Point manager and is a broad,
generally descriptive categorization that does not identify specific items.
The second position further subdivides the National Inventory Control Point manager category
while the third position identifies a specific NSN end item within a generic classification.
