The purchase of textiles originating from the Department of National Defence (DND) should not include CADPAT (Canadian Disruptive Pattern) uniforms and/or accessories unless they have been reduced to rags, preferably by shredding. Reducing to rags means the uniform can never be returned to its whole state. CADPAT items are prohibited from sale and/or distribution. If by error or inadvertence the CADPAT items are left intact and are included in the sale items, the Purchaser must immediately notify GCSurplus and return these items to the client department. Any shipping costs incurred by the Purchaser will be reimbursed by the issuing Canadian Forces Base. The Purchaser's failure to comply with this clause will lead to an immediate cancellation of their GCSurplus account and appropriate legal procedures may be commenced without any further notice.
