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. V8.1.2. 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.

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.
