End of Active Service(EAS), Retirement Commanders are authorized to evaluate and assign Marines to the BCP, MAP, and RCP up to their end of active service (EAS) or retirement date. Therefore, Marines who are approaching their EAS or retirement are still required to maintain compliance with
weight or body composition standards, and present a suitable military appearanceExemptions The following exemptions apply to the BCP and the MAP. • Underlying Medical Condition or Disease: Marines whoare diagnosed with an underlying medical condition or disease that is the primary causal factor for the weight gain/improper weight distribution will remain in an inactive BCP status. These Marines are not eligible for formal MAP assignment until the condition is alleviated. • Pregnancy: After confirmation from an Appropriately Privileged Health Care Provider (APHCP), Marines who are pregnant will be placed in an inactive BCP status and are not eligible for formal MAP assignment during pregnancy, the 42 day (post-partum) convalescent period and for six months following return to full duty (RTFD). For pregnancies that do not come to full term, Marines will be required to meet weight standard requirements after consultation with an APHCP and upon RTFD.Unit Waivers Commanders may request a BCP and MAP management waiver when it is determined that deployment to a combat zone under austere environmental or operational conditions prevents effective BCP, MAP, or RCP participation. To be eligible for a BCP and MAP management waiver, commands must be serving in a combat zone and be in receipt of hostile fire pay. The austere nature of environmental or operational conditions must be of such severity that Marines are prevented routine access to adequate messing, billeting, and the ability to conduct physical training unhindered by enemy activity. Upon approval, a BCP assignment waiver will apply to all Marines within the requesting command. Affected Marines will be placed in an inactive status and will not be evaluated by their commands. However, Marines should continue a reasonable attempt to conform to body composition standards and to present a suitable military appearance. While assigned to the BCP, Marines are ineligible for promotion or reenlistment, regardless of combat zone assignment or BCP status.REPORTING REQUIREMENTS The CCI/CPTR must ensure the information on the BCP and MAP evaluation forms is complete and accurate. A copy of the BCP or MAP evaluation form will be submitted to the servicing personnel administration center (PAC) for unit diary recording when the commander/OIC has made an appropriate formal assignment, extension, or removal determination. The CCI/CPTR will retain the original forms. The following reporting requirements apply to the BCP and the MAP.
