Organization: DOD
Publication Date: 11 August 1997
Status: active
Page Count: 184
scope:

1. Ammunition and explosives safety standards herein shall be considered minimum and greater protection shall be afforded when practicable. They apply whenever any explosives, propellants, or similar energetic materials are present on DoD-owned or -leased facilities and to U.S.-titled ammunition in host nation facilities.

2. Standards herein shall govern DoD facilities siting and construction except:

a. When facilities already have been constructed or approved for construction to meet plans that were developed before the date of this Publication.

b. Existing facilities that do not comply with these standards (when current hazards are not greater than those assumed for their original use) shall be allowed for the balance of their useful lives when it can be demonstrated clearly that redesign or modification is not feasible, and that the quantity of explosives, propellants, or chemical agents cannot be reduced for reasons of operational necessity.

c. Planned facilities that do not meet these standards, but have been certified by the head of the DoD Component as essential because of operational necessity or other compelling reasons.

d. Other situations that upon analysis by the DoD Component and the DoD Explosives Safety Board (DDESB) are determined to provide the required degree of safety through use of protective construction or other specialized safety features.

3. The excepted deviations from these standards in subsection B.2., above, must be documented in the permanent records of the installation. This document must show the date the applicable standard was first published and the date the deviant facility was approved for safety or was first used in the deviating manner.
