Unplanned Explosions at Munitions Sites (UEMS): Excess Stockpiles as Liabilities rather than Assets
Unplanned explosions at munitions sites (UEMS) are a significant safety concern for governments and a major security challenge for the international community. The Small Arms Survey has documented more than 500 such incidents over the 35-year period from 1979 to 2013. This Handbook contains analysis of this data, with many helpful tables, figures, maps, and annexes. It serves to supporting best practice and effective stockpile management, promoting the production of better data capturing and record keeping, and serving as a reference tool and a training tool.
