The facility continues to be used for its intended purpose.
The explosives safety hazards are not increased.
Redesign or modification is not practicable.
The quantity of AE cannot be reduced for reasons of operational necessity.
Those planned facilities that do not meet these Standards, but have been certified by the Head of the DoD Component (see paragraph C1.5.4.) as essential for operational or other compelling reasons.
To other situations that, upon analysis by both the DoD Component and the Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board (DDESB), are determined to provide the required degree of safety through use of protective construction or other specialized safety features.
The DoD Components must document the above exceptions in permanent records. These records must include:
The effective date the applicable Standards were first published.
The date the deviant facility was either approved, from an explosives safety viewpoint, for use or was first used in the deviating manner.
