AOP-15 Survey

In accordance with the required review cycle, a Custodial Working Group (CWG) has been formed under AC/326 SG/B to undertake a review of AOP-15 Edition 3 (Guidance On The Assessment Of The Safety And Suitability For Service Of Non-Nuclear Munitions For NATO Armed Forces).
As agreed by the AC/326 SG/B AOP-15 Update CWG, MSIAC have developed this survey to better understand:
  • How AOP-15 is currently used by the Nations, and how it fits into their S3 assessment processes
  • What the Nations believe the scope and content of AOP-15 ought to be
The results of this survey will be used by the CWG to inform the review of AOP-15.
Any question regarding this survey or related comments can be directed to Matt Ferran (MSIAC TSO Munition Systems): m.ferran@msiac.nato.int
 
Timing: In order to allow time for analysis of results before the Fall 2020 AC/326 SG/B meeting, it is requested that responses to this survey are provided by 31st August 2020; responses received after this date will still be considered but may not be included in the preliminary analysis prior to the first CWG meeting.  
 
(NB throughout this survey the term “munition” is used for simplicity – this should be considered synonymous with terms such as “Ammunition & Explosives” (AE); “Ordnance, Munitions & Explosives (OME); Explosive Ordnance (EO); etc. – i.e. any items to which the principles of AOP-15 might be applied)
