2019.27 United Nations Manual on Ammunition Management (Manual)
The United Nations Manual on Ammunition Management is an essential reference for Member States, troop and police contributing countries, military commanders, police commissioners and staff officers in United Nations peace operations, including senior mission leaders and staff members at United Nations Headquarters. This manual incorporates the International Technical Ammunition Guidelines (IATG) and standardizes good practices and approaches already developed in the field missions with a view to improving and enhancing the safety and security of ammunition in the field. This manual also addresses the need for effective remediation of firing ranges after closure to mitigate against environmental and public health impacts following site handover, in line with the then DPKO-DFS Environmental Policy for Field Missions (2009). The manual was developed by the Department of Peace Operations and the Department of Operational Support with the support of ammunition experts from Member States and in consultation with field missions and the United Nations Mine Action Service. This is the first edition of this Manual.
