Description

The issue of underwater unexploded munitions is a large-scale problem in European sea basins, posing a threat to the marine environment and the security of all maritime activities. The purpose of this study is to: i) develop guidance to enhance cooperation between Member States’ authorities, private bodies and regional organizations dealing with accidental recovery or any encounter with unexploded ordnances and chemical munitions dumped at sea; ii) contribute to improving coordination on the overall monitoring and systematic removal of these munitions; and iii) increase Member States awareness around the issues related to such munitions.
