    Is there a Army Publication that covers the allowable new on farp pads and arming pads.


    Answer

    The FARP should have a Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board (DDESB) approved site plan for the FARP IAW DA Pam 385-64, Ammunition Explosives Safety Standards, and DoD 6055.09, DoD Ammunition and Explosives Safety Standards. That approval will list the maximum net explosive limits (NEW) that may be placed on the pads. This limit is not to be exceeded. Each pad should have an explosive license that will list the maximum amount of NEW allowed per hazard call & division, i.e., 1.1, 1.2.1, 1.2.2, 1.3, etc. If a site plan does not exist, contact the QASAS and/or Safety specialist.
