17VAC15-20-160. Splicing.

Splicing is not permitted on the camera negative, except at the beginning of the reel before all beginning targets but after the clear leader. Splicing can be done in place on the intermediate master up to a total of five splices. An unexposed area of film shall be used between the splice and the beginning titling targets. Ultrasonic splicing is recommended for polyester film.

NOTE: Due to the required filming procedures, more than five splices within a single 16mm reel are permitted for procedural microfilming. However, each day's filming sequence shall be discarded and refilmed when defects obliterating or obscuring information or missing pages are noted within that sequence. Splicing within the daily film sequence is not allowed.
