Over the last fifteen years the mine action community has taken major steps towards professionalising Explosive Ordnance Risk Education (EORE). A central element in that process has been the development of international standards for mine and Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) risk education, originally referred to as Mine Risk Education (MRE). Initially seven International Mine Action Standards (IMAS) on MRE were adopted in 2004, having been developed by UNICEF in consultation with major MRE actors.


Since their adoption in 2004, the MRE standards set a global framework based on which national standards and other technical notes have been developed by countries and programmes. In 2009, the seven existing MRE standards were merged into a single document, IMAS 12.10. In 2018 MRE was renamed as EORE.


This version of IMAS 12.10 has been updated based on input from both an IMAS mandated Technical Working Group, as well as the global Explosive Ordnance Risk Education Advisory Group which was established in 2019. This represents the most substantial update of IMAS 12.10 since 2009.
