For a complete and-up-to-date IMAS please refer to the IMAS in English.
Explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) involves the disposal of explosive ordnance (EO), including mines and
explosive remnants of war (ERW).
While, in practice, EOD operations include disposal of all EO, including mines, the main focus is on the
disposal of ERW. Both items of abandoned ordnance (AXO) and unexploded ordnance (UXO) are found
and disposed of during the course of EOD operations. The wide variety of size and complexity of ERW
requires special attention to be afforded to the management of EOD and the qualifications required to deal
with the varying devices.
The aim of this standard is to provide specifications and guidance for the conduct and management of EOD
as part of mine action. It covers general principles and management responsibilities for EOD. It does not
provide specific technical guidance for the disposal of particular EO.
