BLUF: The AF is currently reviewing AFMAN 36-3912, Air Force Body Composition Program. As coordination is still on-going, we want to get you some interim guidance to share with IRs across the force, as well as your active component organizations, to ensure they are aware of the latest. This interim guidance was coordinated with the IR Strategy Office (ISO) as well as AFRC/A1Z.
1) All IR members (IMAs and PIRR/Cat-E) are charged with a personal responsibility to accomplish an initial Body Composition Assessment (BCA) NLT 30 Sep 2024.
2) All IR members are responsible for completing this requirement in a qualified duty status (paid or points-only).
3) Although the initial Body Composition Program (BCP) guidance indicates this requirement must be completed within the member’s birth month, IRs have been granted permission to deviate from this requirement.
-- AC orgs will be responsible for scheduling and tracking this requirement for their assigned IRs.
-- IRs are not required to re-schedule AT or IDTs to perform duty during their birth month for the sole purpose of completing their initial BCA.
-- IRs will accomplish their initial BCA during their next regularly scheduled duty with their AC org. This initial measurement will establish a “baseline” from which the annual requirement will be set and tracked from that point going forward.
-- IRs should execute annual BCAs within their minimum participation requirements for their position (i.e. 12x AT days & 24 or 48 IDTs determined by their position).
-- IRs who are on RPA or MPA tours during their respective birth month are encouraged to complete the BCA during that time.
-- IRs can accomplish their BCA at another location, but need to be aware that not all locations will be willing to accommodate.
-- IRs can accomplish their Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) and BCA within the same duty timeframe (same month), but some locations may insist the two be at least one duty day apart.
-- IRs can accomplish their BCA in a points-only status, provided their supervisor approves, and UTAPS is updated accordingly.
