Security and policy review process determines the suitability for public release of information. Department
of Defense Directive 5230.09, Clearance of DOD Information for Public Release, requires information relating
to the plans, policies, programs, or operations of DOD or the U.S. Government proposed for public release be
sent through PA channels to the appropriate clearance level for review. Whether information is prepared as an
official release or a personal enterprise, it must be reviewed and cleared before release.
Originators must ensure disclaimers accompany all publications they authorize in a private capacity. An
appropriate disclaimer is:
"The views expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official
policy or position of the Air Force, the Department of Defense, or the U.S. Government."
All Air Force military and civilian personnel, including Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve personnel on
active duty, who release material related to their active duty assignment, retired military members, and former
Air Force civilian employees will use this review service to ensure DOD-related information released to the public
is consistent with their requirement to safeguard classified material.
