a. All equipment and utensils used in food establishments  under Navy
and Marine Corps jurisdiction must be constructed of sanitary, nontoxic,
corrosion resistant materials designed, assembled, and installed to provide
for ease of cleaning.  Sanitary standards for the equipment shall not be
less than those promulgated by an American National Standards Institute
(ANSI) accredited third party organization (e.g., the National Sanitation
Foundation (NSF) or equivalent).  Shipboard food service equipment must
comply with  NAVSUP PUB 533, Shipboard Food Service Equipment Catalog.
b. Stationary equipment must be installed to permit proper cleaning
and sanitary maintenance of such equipment, adjacent equipment, and floor
and wall surfaces in the immediate vicinity. Floor-mounted equipment, not
easily moved, must be sealed to the floor or elevated on legs that provide
at least a 6-inch clearance (aboard ship, 8 inches) between the floor and
equipment.  However, if no part of the floor under the floor-mounted
equipment is more than 6 inches from cleaning access, the clearance space
may be only 4 inches.
c. All food service spaces and equipment must be free from saltwater
connections, cross-connections with a non-potable water supply, and
submerged fresh water inlets.  Exceptions to the salt water requirement are
those shipboard sculleries which contain food waste disposers that have
been specifically approved by CHBUMED to use salt water during the food
waste grinding or pulping process and approved refrigeration units which
use salt water.
d. Surfaces of Equipment or Utensils:
(1) Food-Contact Surfaces.  Food-contact surfaces will be of
materials which are smooth, corrosion resistant, nontoxic, stable, and
nonabsorbent under use conditions and will not impart an odor, color or
