PURPOSE

Manual. This Manual is composed of several volumes, each containing its own purpose, and administratively reissues DoD 6055.09-STD (Reference (a)). The purpose of the overall Manual, in accordance with the authority in DoD Directives 5134.01 and 6055.9E (References (b) and (c)), is to establish explosives safety standards (hereafter referred to as "standards") for the Department of Defense.

These standards are designed to manage risks associated with DoD-titled ammunition and explosives (AE) by providing protection criteria to minimize serious injury, loss of life, and damage to property.

Due to the size and complexity of this Manual, alternate paragraph numbering has been approved for use throughout. The initial numeric set (V#) refers to the volume number within the Manual; the second set (E#) refers to the enclosure number; and subsequent numbers refer to the section, paragraph, and subparagraph numbers. If there is no E#, the reference is to a section above the signature of the volume.

Volume. This Volume contains a complete glossary for Volumes 1 through 7 of DoDM 6055.09-M.

Volume 1 provides general explosives safety information and requirements.

Volume 2 provides criteria for the construction of barricades and explosives facilities, to include criteria for facilities with reduced separation distances.

Volume 3 provides general quantity-distance (QD) criteria for the accidental detonation of hazard division (HD) 1.1 through 1.6 AE, and HD 6.1 items containing toxic chemical agents.

Volume 4 provides QD criteria for airfields and heliports, piers and wharfs, and specific facilities. V8.Volume 5 provides QD criteria for intentional burning or detonation of AE, storage and operations involving energetic liquids, and underground storage of AE.

Volume 6 provides criteria for contingency operations, toxic chemical munitions and agents, and risk-based siting.

Volume 7 provides criteria for unexploded ordnance, munitions response, waste military munitions, and material potentially presenting an explosive hazard.

APPLICABILITY. This Volume:

Applies to:

OSD, the Military Departments, the Office of 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 within the Department of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as the "DoD Components").

DoD-titled AE wherever it is located.

DoD personnel and property when potentially endangered by known hostnation or off-installation AE hazards.

DoD facilities siting and construction, except as indicated in paragraph V8.2.2.

The evaluation of non-DoD explosives siting submissions on DoD installations (see section V4.E5.21.).

Provided the documentation requirements of paragraph V8.E2.3.5 are met, does not apply to:

Existing facilities, or those approved for construction under then-current editions of these standards. This exception applies for the balance of the useful lives of such facilities provided:

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 Heads of the DoD Components (see section V1.E3.4.) as essential for operational or other compelling reasons.

Other situations that, upon analysis by the Heads of the DoD Components 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
