To Get Started

  1. Complete the Enrollment, Receipt, and Destruction (ERD) Request with all specified information.
    • Seal all vests (excluding carriers) in boxes using tamper-evident tape.
  2. Ship items via common carrier (for example, Fed-Ex, UPS, or DHL).
    • All departments should retain tracking records for all shipments and provide this information, as necessary, to maintain a chain of custody of the material.
  3. Once the items are received at our Fiber Brokers location in Brent, Alabama, your designated point of contact will be notified of the shipment's arrival in its entirety.
  4. Once the materials have been destroyed and deemed no longer usable for ballistic protection applications, your department will receive a letter certifying the proper disposal and destruction of all submitted vest material, and an accurate and complete list of serial numbers (via US Mail).
    • This process can take approximately 30-45 days to complete.
