The majority of the form sections and boxes are written in English with several additional lines in French. The DD Form 180 - alternately called the "Demande Concernant Les Denominations D'article" - is listed with two additional form numbers:
The most recent edition of the form was released by the Department of Defense (DoD) in October 2010. The latest DD Form 180 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the Executive Services Directorate website.
