The COMSEC custodian is responsible for his account's material. To assist the custodian in his accountability
and enhance security by detecting potential COMSEC incidents, the COMSEC system uses a series of inspections
and audits. A well-trained custodian, who is conscientious in his duties, knows how to prepare for inspections
and audits. He should receive no surprises during the course of the review. Inspectors and custodians use the
same regulations in performing their duties.
