The Army and Air Force Exchange is selling small arms ammunition in their retail department. Is DA Pam 385-64, paragraph 2-11 or other explosive safety standards applicable to the Exchange’s sale of ammunition? Should an explosive license be issued?

Read the guidance USATECS has provided in the attached document.

​Does anyone have a list of all missile and conventional munitions which contain a humidity indicator? We're developing a next generation temperature humidity indicator and are looking for a comprehensive DODIC listing of all potential candidate munitions.


Thanks very much!

​The FY18 Automatic Returns List (ARL) - Disposition of Used Packing Materiel and Certain Specified Ammunition Components has a few items which require special attention. One of which is the RRAPDS device on specific serial numbered Excaliburs. If you do identify one please contact the PM Excalibur Office at Picatinny Arsenal. Attached is the current ARL posted on AKO at and a draft procedure for the RRAPDS device. RRAPDS Surveillance Plan Procedures for Excalibur_v8.pdfARL FY 2018.pdf

​Is there a requirement for Ammunition Haulers to take AMMO-68-DL.  I know that in the DA PAM 385-64 Table 1-1 the requirement for AMMO-68-DL is based off your job task.  Is being a ammo hauler one of those task.

​If someone is certified  by general HAZMAT Certification Training (Ammo-62), can they also certify Class 7 HAZMAT, or do they need one of the courses listed in DTR pag II-204-8 (g) in addition to Ammo-62?

If the additional courses are required, does the old AMMO-86-DL (transportation of radioactive materials) fullfil this requirement?
