◉ A system for warning and reporting of NBC hazards is well established throughout NATO. It is vital that the information is made available as soon as possible so that commanders can react accordingly and warn other units, thus preventing unnecessary casualties.

◉ This information can be passed via a standard NBC 1 format recognised by the 3 Services and throughout NATO.

◉ Not all the information required may be available at once, however, it is important that serials A-F be transmitted at the earliest opportunity so that predictions can be formulated. A completed NBC 1 should be transmitted as soon as the information becomes available.

◉ The NBC 1 should be accorded the same priority as a Contact Report.
