SUBJECT :

Assignment of Code "VM" for Vietnam, DSCA 07-39 [SAMM E-Change 92]

On December 29, 2006, in Presidential Determination No. 2007-10, the President determined that Vietnam is eligible to receive defense articles and defense services. Effective immediately, SAMM Table C4.T2., Country, International Organization, and Regional Codes and FMS Eligibility, is updated as follows, replacing the current country code of "VS" with "VM" in accordance with the current National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) usage. As several cases from the early 1970s remain in some computer systems under the former "VS" country code, the listing will retain a parenthetical reference to it. All new cases will use "VM."
