Abstract : MOD must control the storage and processing of explosives in such a way that the chance of a fire or an explosion is minimised; if a fire or explosion should occur whether it results from accident, enemy attack or sabotage, then the adjacent explosive stocks and facilities including personnel in the vicinity of the explosion site must be protected, to a predetermined, practical standard.
