The UXO Forum (RP1012)

This project has been designed to bring real change to the industry through a series of events, as well as other tools to encourage regular, open and efficient communication. The UXO Forum will supplement, and facilitate the legacy of, CIRIA guidance Unexploded ordnance (UXO) A guide for the construction industry (C681) and the forthcoming Guidance on management of unexploded ordnance in off-shore situations (RP998)


Objectives of the UXO Forum

  • To keep non-technical specialists, particularly clients, consultants and contractors up to date with technical progresses relating to assessment and management of UXO in land and marine projects
  • To encourage healthy, constructive and open dialog between different stakeholders (UXO technical specialists and non-technical specialists) so that they understand each other better and the UXO subject as a whole
  • To showcase good practice and examples
  • Remove ‘black art’ image about UXO specialists.
