Amnesty Collection / Program at Military Ocean Terminals

​During my previous assignments QASAS collected ammunition from base amnesty boxes and turned in at the ASP. Now that I'm a supervisor working at a Military Ocean Terminal how does the amnesty collection / program work?  Who is authorized to collect from base amnesty containers? What training / certification is required to collect ammunition from amnesty container?  Who can transport amnesty from collection points to base arms room for storage until turn in at supporting ASP?  What training / certification is required to transport from amnesty container to local arms room? During previous assignments at ASPs QASAS collected amnesty and turned in at local ASP.  Is an appointment memo required from base commander appointing amnesty collection personnel? A fellow QASAS said a HAZMAT endorsement on license is required in order for QASAS to transport from base amnesty box to local arms room (3 miles crossing a public roadway). Nearest ASP is one and a half hour drive, amnesty would be stored in local arms room until military police have a need to go to ASP other than amnesty turn in.  Examples of amnesty appointment memo / sop would be greatly appreciated. Thank you fellow SME.

Ellen, It does seem that 596th Transportation Brigade serves as the Installation Commander for MOTSU and MOTCO, https://www.sddc.army.mil/596th/Pages/default.aspx.

DA Pam 385-64 does clarify the requirements as “Garrisons, installations, and forward operating bases having elements that use military munitions will establish an AE Amnesty Program. Commanders should establish their Amnesty Program using guidelines in keeping with their installation’s mission.”

I suspect that there may already be a program that may have just not been kept up with and should answer many of the questions. If not, a new program would need to be created from scratch; DA PAM 700-16 & DA PAm 385-64 have many elements that need to be followed. 

If you need help, I will be glad to assist; just send an email.
