Abstract : In order to supply the armed forces with adequate support in the field of qualification/classification of explosive substances and munition, the TNO-PML performed a research assignment in which a number of preliminary activities were executed in the field mentioned above. The activities were carried out in the period June 1991-June 1992. First an overview is made of the relevant STANAG's and AOP's. Furthermore, it was checked which of the tests for qualification/ classification can be executed at the TNO-PML. Apart from these activities in the filed of qualification regulations and available test methods, modernisation of a number tests has commenced. This concerns the vacuum stability test, the spark test and differential scanning calorimetry. Furthermore, experience was obtained with the execution of the relatively new test series 7 from the orange book. Beside that, several recommendations are made concerning the qualification and classification tests mentioned before.
