4-1-2. NATIONAL NOTAM OFFICE RELATIONSHIPS

a. The USNOF is charged with monitoring the USNS. The USNOF must monitor the NOTAM system for compliance with the criteria and procedures set forth in this order. When questions arise on NOTAM dissemination, formats, contractions, or other aspects of the distribution system, the USNOF should be consulted. The USNOF is the authority to ensure NOTAM formats. To ensure NOTAMs are issued consistent with policy, NOTAM originators and certified sources must comply with USNOF personnel guidance.

b. Discrepancies in procedures or format must be recorded, and Aeronautical Information Management must forward a list of the discrepancies to Flight Services, Safety and Operations Support, Operational Procedures, and the service area office.

c. Editing:

1. The USNOF may edit any NOTAM (except FDC NOTAMs relating to instrument flight procedures) that does not conform to the formats and/or examples contained in this order. The contents of a NOTAM must not be changed without notifying the originating facility.

NOTE-
FDC NOTAMS relating to instrument approach and departure procedures are originated by the Mission Support Services – Aeronautical Products Office under the Flight Standards Service policy contained in FAA Order 8260.19, chapter 2, section 6. ARTCCs must ensure the origination of NOTAMs pertaining to a Standard Terminal Arrival (STAR).

2. Should the USNOF edit a NOTAM and change the intent, the NOTAM must be canceled by the issuing facility and reissued as a new NOTAM, after consultation with the USNOF.
