NATO Supply Group 79: Keeping Things Clean

NATO Supply Group (NSG) 79, also known as Federal Supply Group (FSG) 79 in the United States, serves as a standardized classification system for a wide range of cleaning equipment and supplies. It categorizes various essential items used for maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in various settings, including:

  • Military facilities
  • Civilian institutions
  • Industrial environments
  • Homes

Breakdown of NSG 79:

NSG 79 is further divided into three main categories, each encompassing specific cleaning equipment and supplies:

  • FSC 7910: Floor Polishers and Vacuum Cleaning Equipment:
    • Floor polishers: machines used to maintain and polish various floor surfaces like hardwood, tile, and concrete.
    • Vacuum cleaners: equipment that utilizes suction power to remove dust, dirt, and debris from floors and other surfaces.
  • FSC 7920: Brooms, Brushes, Mops, and Sponges:
    • Brooms: used for sweeping away dirt and debris from large areas.
    • Brushes: employed for cleaning a variety of surfaces, depending on the bristle type and stiffness.
    • Mops: cleaning tools with absorbent materials, used for cleaning floors and walls.
    • Sponges: versatile cleaning tools for absorbing liquids and applying cleaning solutions.
  • FSC 7930: Cleaning and Polishing Compounds and Preparations:
    • Cleaning compounds: formulated solutions designed to remove dirt, grime, and stains from various surfaces.
    • Polishing compounds: used to restore shine and protect different surfaces like furniture and floors.

Benefits of using NSG 79:

  • Standardization: Creates a common language for the global supply chain, facilitating seamless communication and collaboration between manufacturers, distributors, and end users.
  • Efficient procurement: Enables clear identification and sourcing of specific cleaning equipment and supplies based on their NSG classification.
  • Improved data sharing: Standardizes data exchange, making it easier to share information about cleaning products and equipment across different organizations.

Additional considerations:

It's important to note that NSG 79 primarily focuses on general cleaning equipment and supplies. More specialized cleaning solutions and equipment used in specific industries or for hazardous materials might fall under different NSG categories.

In conclusion, NSG 79 plays a crucial role in the global supply chain for cleaning equipment and supplies. By establishing a standardized classification system, it facilitates communication, simplifies procurement, and enhances data sharing within the cleaning industry.
