Mikael Bold has been appointed the new Secretary of the IMAS Review Board after his predecessor, Faiz Paktian, completed his 10 years of service at the GICHD. His appointment coincides with the release of the Guide to National Mine Action Standards. The Guide serves as a quick reference for mine action practitioners to understand core NMAS issues.
Two other recent releases include the updated Framework for IMAS, as well as a Farsi translation of IMAS 10.50.
IMAS 07.12 has been published for public review as a “draft edition” pending the UN-IACG endorsement. NMAAs are encouraged to provide feed back on the implementation of IMAS 07.12 Quality Management in Mine Action.
