Scope and Applicability.

The ammunition and explosives (AE) manufacturing, testing, handling, maintenance, developing, demilitarization, munitions response, disposal, transportation, storage and use of conventional ordnance ashore and afloat is inherently hazardous. Therefore, it is imperative that a safety program designed to minimize the potential explosives hazards be aggressively pursued at all levels. The policies and processes contained in this instruction are applicable to:

a. All U.S. Navy commands. This manual implements and amplifies the mandatory AE safety standards of references (a) through (d) as established by the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF), the SECNAV, DoD Explosives Safety Board (DDESB) and the applicable environmental requirements of reference (e).

b. Tenant commands of other military services, Government agencies and contractor operations located on Navy commands and installations.

c. Navy units who are tenants on other military service or foreign host nation installations. Navy commands that are tenants aboard another military service or foreign host nation installation must adhere to the Service's or host nation installation's explosives safety criteria when the explosives safety criteria are more restrictive.

d. Navy commands operating on foreign soil must follow host-nation, applicable multinational or U.S. explosives safety standards, whichever are more protective, unless standards applicability is mandated by international agreement established by the combatant commander. In the event no explosives safety process has been established, Navy commands must adhere to this instruction and other applicable Navy explosives safety related instructions and manuals.
