June 10, 2002
The Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) system is prescribed by MIL-STD 3007 and provides
planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance criteria, and applies to all service
commands having military construction responsibilities. UFC will be used for all service projects
and work for other customers where appropriate.
UFC are living documents and will be periodically reviewed, updated, and made available to
users as part of the Services' responsibility for providing technical criteria for military
construction. Headquarters, United States Army Corps of Engineers (HQUSACE), Naval
Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), and Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency
(AFCESA) are responsible for administration of the UFC system. Technical content of UFC is
the responsibility of the preparing tri-service committee. Recommended changes with
