The destruction of explosive ordnance (EO), and in particular Anti-Personnel Mine (APM) stockpiles, can be logistically complex due to the quantities involved. The physical destruction techniques available range from the relatively simple Open Burning and Open Detonation (OBOD) techniques to highly sophisticated industrial processes. In many cases, OBOD will be the only practical, viable or affordable technique available. Therefore, this IMAS seeks to establish the principles and procedures for the safe conduct of large-scale destruction operations using OBOD techniques.

This IMAS replicates the contents of Annex D to IATG 10.10 Destruction and demilitarization and is included within the IMAS series for ease of reference.
