DESR 6055.09_AFMAN 91-201 Explosives Safety Standards, May 2020

This manual establishes Air Force policy for explosives safety criteria, identifies hazards, and states safety precautions and rules when working with explosives.

This revision reflects changes in guidance and procedures dealing with Air Force explosives safety standards. Major changes include completely revising AFMAN 91-201 as a supplement to DESR 6055.09, Edition 1; incorporation of the Air Force Guidance Memorandum 2020-01; and rearrangement of AFMAN 91-201 to align with DESR 6055.09.

AIN 012-21

Updated Inspection Procedures for DODIC M914

This AIN is issued to inform activities of updated inspection criteria for DODIC M914; specifically, to formalize and document the number of firings for the item and the related inspection criteria.

At the time of turn-in, activities will request the number of times the item was fired and if the item is correctly repackaged.  Inspectors will specifically look for the markings as outlined in TM 9-1375-215-13&P, paragraphs 3.8d(8) and 3.8d(9) and for evidence the item was fired / repackaged.

Munitions and Explosives Safety Update

As you may have noticed, DAU has released a new sign in for their websites.

 

Unfortunately, the sign in software has created some problems that DAU did not expect. The main problem for the Munitions CoP is the loss of being able to post new items under topics, such as placing the latest Munitions and Explosives Safety Newsletter under the Ammo CoP Newsletter topic.

 

Until this problem is fixed all new items posted can be found listed in Announcements https://www.dau.edu/cop/ammo/Lists/Announcements/AllItems.aspx and under Contribution Type: Case Study https://www.dau.edu/cop/ammo/DAU%20Sponsored%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx.
