Defence Panel – Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) Companies


Defence maintains a panel of suitably qualified UXO consultants and contractors; companies on this panel have been assessed by Defence as being suitable to conduct UXO related work on behalf of Defence.

The current Defence Panel is the Defence Infrastructure Panel – Environment, Heritage and Engineering Services (DIP.EHE). The DIP.EHE separates UXO capabilities into three streams (some companies may be included in multiple streams):

Unexploded Ordnance Management and Advice includes the provision of specialist technical advice, strategic advice, risk management advice, project management services, and historical site research. The advice and services outlined in this stream can be engaged to inform the development of policies, strategies, standards, templates, implementation plans and guidelines in relation to the assessment and management of UXO/Explosive Ordnance Materiel (EOM).

Unexploded Ordnance Remediation includes undertaking actual UXO hazard remediation operations. These services can be engaged to complete physical remediation works, including undertaking civil works, processing EOM to ensure it is free from energetic material, and planning and conducting the appropriate disposal of UXO when authorised to do so by Defence.

Unexploded Ordnance Survey and Safety Services includes the provision of UXO avoidance and safety support services and the undertaking of field validation surveys. The activities and services outlined in this stream are undertaken to support the safe conduct of activities in areas potentially affected by UXO and to develop assessments of the level of UXO/EOM related contamination.
