This guide is focused on U.S. munitions and certain materials of interest that in one or more configurations may contain compounds listed in the schedule of chemicals in the Chemical Weapons Convention, which are considered chemical warfare material by the Recovered Chemical Warfare Material Program. It is a compilation of technical information to aid unexploded ordnance qualified personnel in the identification of chemical munitions and related materiel. Because many munitions appear similar, and environmental exposure can obscure characteristics necessary for positive identification, only individuals with extensive training in munitions identification and functioning should approach, disturb, or handle suspect munitions or certain materials of interest. The information is useful to project managers for planning field operations and ultimate disposition of items.
