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 https:www.us.army.mil/suite/files/9174200 and a draft procedure for the RRAPDS device.

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?
Are there any references that spell out specific background or competencies necessary/required for those designated as inert certifiers?
Who would you need to contact to find out how the extension on the recertification process works? An ammunition handler failed Ammo 37 and cannot travel to take Ammo 62 due to health reasons.
I just went through a Explosive Safety Inspection (ESI) lasat week and the inspectors stated that I was not allowed to mixes A063 (5.56MM Tracer) and A059 (5.56MM Ball) in the same ammo can. We are a security force department, and these DODIC"s/NALC's are place 4-1 inside of a 30 round magazine. We used these magazines according to Standard Of Operations (SOP) as a "QUICK REACTION FORCE" in case we have an emergency situation aboard the base. Easy access and ready to go. The inspectors stated that they never seen this done before and there is no instructions that states we can't do this type of operations. Does anyone have any information or instructions that states we are authorized to do this since we are a security force? Thanks.
I have registered to take the refresher course of Ammo 62(AMMO 37) and are required to have the following:
The latest editions of the International MaritimeDangerous Goods (IMDG) Code and the International Air Transport Association(IATA) regulations.
Does anyone have these or know how I could obtainthem? Looking online for purchase,combined one would spend nearly $700.00.
I appreciate any help and assistance.
Where does it state that Forklifts and other ammo handling equipment must be "load tested" annually?
Does anyone have guidance or regulations related to accountable records when receiving foreign military items? Items are received and recorded under country code. E.G. 1410-30-xxx-xxxx. Need guidance to provide to tenant.
Can the DA Form 1687 written SIGNATURE be in any language other than traditional English?
I'm trying to find out how other ammunition installation get rid of subject munitions once they have been turned in by using units.
Does anyone have a complete, comprehensive AMC-R 700-107 compliant SOP for ammunition operations that includes all operations involved in an ASP and is complete with job hazard analysis and risk assessments for each operation?
Is the Commander required to sign a SOP for ammunition operations? If so by what
regulation is it required?
