Unplanned explosions at munitions sites: new Handbook

A new Small Arms Survey Handbook, Unplanned Explosions at Munitions Sites (UEMS): Excess Stockpiles as Liabilities rather than Assets, offers a historical overview of every known unplanned explosion at a munitions site (UEMS incident) dating back to 1979, and provides advice to states with advice on managing their stockpiles effectively and generating better data on these events.

The Handbook includes an overview of the scale and scope of the challenge;detailed guidance on using the Incident Reporting Template (IRT); and summaries of UEMS incidents by country, by sub-region and by year.

An online database providing periodically updated detailed information on UEMS events, now including an interactive map, is available on the Small Arms Survey website.

The Handbook is complemented by a series of Research Notes on the topic:
