corrective maintenance procedures.
b. Completeness. Check equipment against the packing slip to see if the shipment is complete. Report all discrepancies

evidence that it has been applied to the equipment you are unpacking, note discrepancy on DA Form 2404, Equipment
Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet.
