Body Composition Program BODY COMPOSITION PROGRAM (BCP) OVERVIEW As a staff non-commissioned officer you should understand the BCP process steps to properly supervise a Marine identified for the BCP. Any delay in the process may delay the Marine being officially assigned to the BCP and therefore delay the start of the official program. If Marines do not meet established BCP standards, they will be notified of their deficiencies and processed for BCP assignment. Commanders are responsible for ensuring the BCP processing period is completed as soon as possible and not longer than 60 days. If Marines return to standards during the processing period, the Marine will not be assigned to the BCP. Formal Documentation - The BCP evaluation form will be used to notify Marines of their formal BCP assignment. In addition, the following documentation will be used during the BCP process. Medical documentation Counseling records Periodic weigh-in and BCE results Remedial conditioning program (RCP) training log Physical fitness test (PFT)/combat fitness test (CFT) performance results BODY COMPOSITION PROGRAM (BCP) PROCESS STEPS Upon determination that a Marine exceeds weight standards, the following steps are taken during the BCP process CONDUCT BCE ADDITIONAL WEIGH-INS MEDICAL EVALUATION COMMANDER’S DETERMINATION CONSELING UNIT DIARY ENTRY ASSIGNMENT TO BCP & RCP MAKE FINAL DETERMINATION Conduct BCE If a Marine exceeds weight standards, the CCI/CPTR will conduct a body composition evaluation (BCE) on the same day as the weight measurement. The CCI/CPTR will record the results on the BCP evaluation form. Remember that the Privacy Act applies to this information Additional Weigh-ins
Marines may have additional weigh-ins/BCEs at any time in the BCP assignment processing period. If the Marine returns to standard within the BCP assignment processing period, the Marine will not be assigned to BCP. However, if the Marine is still out of standards at the end of the processing period, the Marine will be assigned to BCP. If a performance evaluation is due during the period of BCP processing, the reporting senior will accurately report the Marine's height, weight, and body fat percentage (Ht/Wt/BF%) data and will include a statement in the report that the Marine is being evaluated for assignment to BCP. The Marine will be provided the opportunity to submit a statement regarding this adverse comment Medical Evaluation After confirmation that a Marine exceeds both weight and body composition standards, the CCI/CPTR will notify the chain of command that a medical evaluation is required. The Marine requires a medical evaluation by an Appropriately Privileged Health Care Provider (APHCP) prior to BCP formal assignment. An APHCP will: Determine whether weight gain is due to an underlying medical condition or disease.
