Details of the form:

SF 702 is a form consisting two columns on the sheet which can be folded in half.  The same information is collected on both halves of the sheet.  There is space to collect information about the date, time, and initials of whoever opened, closed, or checked the security container.

What to do with the form:

Once the cover sheet is filled out, attach it to the outside of the control drawer or on the outside face of the vault door, with either tape or a magnetically-attached holder.

Why the form is needed:

The DoD Information Security Program: Protection of Classified Information, DoD Manual 5200.01, Volume 3, requires ALL DoD services and agencies to use SF 702.  According to Enclosure 2, Paragraph 9:
