My Team has been developing a new set of Defence Regulations which is due to replace the Joint Service Publications (JSP) and many of you will be familiar with JSP 390-Lasers, JSP 403-Ranges, JSP 482-Explosives, JSP 498-MACR and JSP 520-OME. By the end of this year, all these JSPs will be incorporated into two new publications; DSA 02.5 – Defence OME Regulations and DSA 03.5 – Defence Codes of Practice for OME Safety, both of which are made available on the MOD internet webpages. On a final note, the Explosives Storage and Transport Committee (ESTC) was resigned to history on the 1st April 2015 when we stood-up this new team. Classification of Military Explosives is now carried out by DOSR, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries in that area.
