DODD 4715.11(D) 4/24/07
ENVIRONMENTAL AND EXPLOSIVES SAFETY MANAGEMENT ON OPERATIONAL RANGES WITHIN THE UNITED STATES
|Publication Date:||24 April 2007|
REISSUANCE AND PURPOSE
This Directive reissues reference (a) to establish policy and assign responsibilities under references (b) and (c) for:
Sustainable use and management of operational ranges located within the United States.
The protection of DoD personnel and the public from explosive hazards on operational ranges located within the United States.
APPLICABILITY AND SCOPE
This Directive applies to:
The Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Military Departments, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Joint Staff; the Combatant Commands, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, the Defense Agencies, the DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities in the Department of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as "the DoD Components").
All operational ranges located within the United States.
For operational ranges that a non-DoD Component owns, this Directive applies subject to the terms of any agreement with the owner for the leasing or operation of the range. (The DoD Components shall attempt to ensure that future agreements are consistent with this Directive and provide for non-DoD users to proportionally reimburse the DoD Component for the costs of complying with this Directive.)
When a DoD Component other than the DoD Component exercising real property accountability operates an operational range, responsibility for compliance with this Directive is assigned to the operating DoD Component, unless the two parties agree otherwise.
This Directive does not apply to operational ranges located outside the United States. For such operational ranges, consult DoD Directive 4715.12 (reference (d)).
This Directive does not apply to indoor ranges.
