EOD Clearance of Armoured Fighting Vehicles

  • Version
    Ed. 1, Amendment 1
  • Latest amendment
    01 Jul 2013

The explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) clearance of armoured fighting vehicles (AFV) can be one of the most technically complex and demanding operations conducted by an EOD technician. It requires the development of render safe procedures (RSP) from first principles combined with a detailed understanding of the design and make-up of ammunition systems.

In post-conflict environments there could be a requirement to ensure that AFVs are safe as part of the humanitarian demining process. This Technical Note has been written, as an advisory document, to ensure that managers, field staff and EOD technicians are aware of all the potential hazards and provides guidance to the development of a safe RSP.

The EOD clearance of AFVs should only be undertaken by appropriately qualified EOD personnel; it is not a task for basic deminers or other field staff.
