Unexploded ordnance (UXO) risk management guide for land-based projects (C785)

Unexploded ordnance (UXO) is one of many hazards affecting land-based projects in the UK. This guide offers advice on UXO risk management for land transactions and development, through to maintenance and demolition. It is intended for use by those whose work takes them into the ground and whose role requires them to either assess risk presented by UXO, review third-party advice on UXO risk, or respond to UXO encounters.

For anyone new to this subject, it is recommended that this guide is used before reading the greater detail available within our earlier publication " Unexploded ordnance (UXO) A guide for the construction industry (C681) as and where needed. Reference to to this publication is made throughout this guide.

This guide does not replace advice from specialists, but it can be used as a tool for UXO risk management.

This publication is accompanied by an A3 poster, copies of which can be dowloaded here free of charge.
