Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) is the lead organization-with technical and management authority and accountability-for all logistics support functions associated with the Navy's Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) Control and Management (HMC&M) and Pollution Prevention (P2) Programs. NAVSUP is the Major Claimant/Budget Submitting Office (BSO) for planning, programming, budgeting, and allocation of funds to support the HMC&M and P2 Programs. Management of these programs falls under NAVSUP Headquarters, SUP 04 Assistant Commander (ACOM), SUP 044 Division, and SUP 0442 Commodities Management Branch.

NAVSUP's HMC&M support functions include implementation and operation of the Consolidated Hazardous Material Reutilization and Inventory Management Program (CHRIMP). CHRIMP is the Navy's fundamental tool for life-cycle control and management of HAZMAT, both ashore and afloat. It promotes compliance with a broad range of federal, state, and local environmental regulations by mandating life-cycle management procedures to control, track, and reduce the variety and quantity of HAZMAT in use and ultimately disposed. Services covered under CHRIMP include the proper identification, segregation, and storage of HAZMAT; inventory accuracy; shelf-life management; and material offload and turn-in for reuse or disposal. Since its inception in 1990, CHRIMP has resulted in significant reduction in HAZMAT procurement and associated hazardous waste disposal costs.

CHRIMP at shore installations is managed by NAVSUP HAZMAT Directors located at each of eight regional Fleet Logistics Centers (FLCs)—Norfolk, Virginia; Jacksonville, Florida; San Diego, California; Bremerton, Washington; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; Yokosuka, Japan; Sigonella, Italy; and Manama, Bahrain. CHRIMP aboard Navy vessels is managed by Supply Officers and Enlisted Sailors in Supply ratings.

HAZMAT Information Technology (IT) systems in use by NAVSUP include Navy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for CHRIMP operations ashore, Hazardous Inventory Control System (HICS) for CHRIMP operations aboard surface ships, and DLA's Hazardous Materials Information Resource System (HMIRS) for storage of Safety Data Sheets (SDSs). NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support (WSS) N26 Division is responsible for development and maintenance of HAZMAT data in these IT systems, as well as the processes and training for use of these systems. NAVSUP Headquarters SUP 0442, in collaboration with NAVSUP SUP 063 and NAVSUP Business Systems Center (BSC), designs, develops, deploys, and sustains the HAZMAT IT systems.

NAVSUP's P2 support functions include afloat solid and plastic waste reduction programs (WRAPS and PRIME, respectively), HAZMAT minimization and standardization efforts, sustainable (aka “green”) procurement, and management of the National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) certificate repository. NAVSUP's P2 support functions are managed by WSS N26.

WSS N24 serves as the Navy Focal Point and policy lead for transportation of non-ordnance, non-explosive and non-nuclear propulsion-related HAZMAT, per the Defense Transportation Regulation (DTR). In this capacity, WSS N24 provides technical review and authorization for shipment of HAZMAT in packaging that differs from that prescribed in U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations.
