Subject: [CPEO-MEF] MUNITIONS, REGULATION: U.S. EPA issues Munitions Responses Guidelines
On July 27, 2010, U.S. EPA's Federal Facilities Restoration and Reuse Office and Federal Facilities Enforcement Office issued "Munitions Response Guidelines."

"These Guidelines provide a framework to EPA Regional Offices overseeing responses involving munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) and munitions constituents (MC) at locations other than operational ranges where explosive hazards or environmental contamination are known or suspected to be present. These Guidelines build on the joint Department of Defense (DoD)/EPA Interim Final Management Principles for Implementing Response Actions at Closed, Transferring, and Transferred (CTT) Ranges ("DoD/EPA UXO Principles"), signed March 7, 2000. For the most part, these Guidelines address situations where a DoD Component, (e.g., the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)) will be conducting the munitions response action as the Lead Agency and EPA is responsible for regulatory oversight. These Guidelines may also be relevant when EPA or other federal agencies have the lead. EPA and DoD's military services have traditionally worked together effectively at these sites and expect continued strong collaboration in the future."
