The nature of ammunition and explosives with their potential for unplanned, violent reaction makes it necessary to develop recommendations and guidelines for safe conventional ammunition management stockpile management. This requires, by necessity, a risk-based approach which should be based on sound explosive engineering and science. Risk management decisions based on more complete knowledge can be made if the likely hood of an explosives accident can be taken into account as well as the consequences. This requires knowledge of the range of scientifically accepted formulae that can be used to support decision-making and risk management during conventional ammunition stockpile management. This IATG form requires the use of scientific formulae that are either useful or essential to safe, effective and efficient stockpile management.
