Range of Responsibilities
CHAPTER 3 STOWAGE Stowage  is  the  assembly  of  material  from various  sources  held  and  protected  in  the warehouse or storeroom until needed. Materials stowed  in  various  storerooms  aboard  ship  must be  arranged  to: make  sure  of  maximum  use  of  available space, provide  orderly  stowage  and  ready accessibility, prevent  damage  to  the  ship  or  injury  to personnel, prevent  damage  to  materials, make it easier to issue the oldest stock first using the first in, first out (FIFO) method, and make  it  easier  to  conduct  an  inventory. The   effective   arrangement   of   materials   in storerooms aboard ships begins with the person in charge of the storeroom and continues up the chain  of  command.  Storerooms  aboard  ship  will not  be  the  same  size  and  each  storeroom  will present a different problem when you are arrang- ing  stock.  Some  storerooms  may  be  difficult  to get to because they are in small, out of the way spaces.  Many  storerooms  may  have  frames,  pipes, stanchions,  and  other  obstacles  that  may  interfere with  your  stowage  plans.  This  is  why  you  often have to change your plans for arranging stock in different   storerooms. BULK  STOREROOM  STOWAGE Ship’s  store  storerooms  are  referred  to  as  bulk storerooms.  They  are  designated  Group  III  spaces when materials intended for resale are stowed in 3-1 them.  Group  III  spaces  must  be  secured  according to  procedures  discussed  in  chapter  1. The person in charge of the bulk storeroom(s) is referred to as the bulk storeroom custodian and . is  responsible  to  the  ship’s  store  officer  for  all material in his or her space(s). The bulk storeroom custodian accepts responsibility for this material, once  he  or  she  signs  the  receipt  document  and accepts custody of the material. Materials stowed in the ship’s store bulk storeroom must be limited to ship’s store and standard Navy clothing stock. Any other articles not in the custody of the bulk storeroom  custodian  must  not  be  stowed  in  the same   storeroom.   If   an   emergency   exists,   the commanding  officer  may  authorize,  in  writing, for  articles  to  be  stowed  in  the  same  storeroom as ship’s store and standard Navy clothing stock. Once the emergency passes, articles will be stowed in a separate space. RESPONSIBILITY OF BULK STOREROOM   CUSTODIANS The  ship’s  store  officer  is  required  to  assign the   responsibilities   of   the   bulk   storeroom custodian in writing. Once the persons assigned understand  their  responsibilities  and  accept  them, they  are  then  responsible  to  the  ship’s  store  officer for  performing  their  duties  properly. The   bulk   storeroom   custodian’s   primary responsibility  is  the  proper  stowage,  security, financial accountability, receipt, and expenditure of  all  stock  in  the  bulk  storeroom.  The  bulk storeroom custodian will receive and issue stock to various ship’s store activities once the proper paper  work  is  received.  The  custodian  is  also responsible   for   the   protection   of   stores   from damage  or  deterioration  and  is  the  only  person who  will  have  access  to  the  bulk  storeroom  except under  emergency  entry  procedures  discussed  in chapter 1 of this manual. The custodian must keep stock  arranged  in  the  storeroom  so  breakouts, issues,  inventories,  and  so  forth,  are  easier  to
