(a) Levels of priority.
(1) There are two levels of priority established by Federal Priorities and Allocations System regulations, identified by the rating symbols “DO” and “DX”.
(2) All DO–rated orders have equal priority with each other and take precedence over unrated orders. All DX–rated orders have equal priority with each other and take precedence over DO–rated orders and unrated orders. (For resolution of conflicts among rated orders of equal priority, see § 101.34(c).)
(3) In addition, a Directive regarding priority treatment for a given item issued by the Department of Health and Human Services for that item takes precedence over any DX–rated order, DO–rated order, or unrated order, as stipulated in the Directive. (For a full discussion of Directives, see § 101. 62.
(b) Program identification symbols. Program identification symbols, such as “DO–HR”, or “DX–HR”, indicate which approved program is being supported by a rated order. Programs may be approved under the procedures of E.O. 13603 Section 202 at any time. Program identification symbols do not connote any priority.
(c) Priority ratings. A priority rating consists of the rating symbol—DO or DX—and the program identification symbol, such as DO–HR or DX–HR.
