Over deze norm
This CEN Workshop Agreement, (CWA) by design covers the conventional munitions disposal part of EOD in mine action. This CWA does not cover the clearance of improvised munitions, munitions containing biological, chemical, nuclear or radiological components. The use of this CWA will allow Mine Action programs to enhance the capacity building process by providing a tool for planning and assessing the personal development of staff. The whole of the Mine Action sector would benefit from using this CWA since the use should enhance the process of planning and evaluating staff development and capacity building. Additionally, the CWA should improve the Quality Management process by enhancing the assessment of training and competency of the staff involved in Mine Clearance and EOD work. This CWA should be used to define the competency required by different categories of staff on technical matters related to mine action activities. In the CWA three levels of competence have been defined using existing knowledge and the International Mine Action Standards (IMAS). Level One operators are competent to locate, identify and destroy under appropriate supervision, single items in-situ on which they have been specifically trained. Level Two operators are competent to locate, identify, move, transport and destroy multiple items on which they have been specifically trained. Level Three operators are competent to conduct render-safe procedures and final disposal of any type of explosive ordnance with the exception of specialisations listed under level four. On deciding to use this CWA it may be implemented using the process described in this document as guidance.
