Generally, materials containing CVI must be appropriately designated and withheld from public disclosure. CVI must also be physically controlled and protected. The protections include:

  • Storage of CVI
  • Marking of CVI
  • Transmission of CVI
  • Responsibilities when in transit with CVI
  • Destruction of CVI.
