Abstract:Due to several factors; especially the sale of military properties and a lack of competence; French institutions decided to modify the procedure for the disposal of ammunition. The old ammunition is now allowed to be destroyed by civilian companies under limited conditions. This means that we must transfer the knowledge and the competence from military to civilian fields.

Hence; it is necessary to put in place new organisational structures and specific training courses. While a new regulation has been edicted for one year; its implementation is very difficult. Despite the various problems raised; application on-site must be ensured.

After a presentation of the organisational structure for the disposal of ammunition in France; I underline the problems posed by this transfer; the technical discussions we have had and the work we do now; especially in the matter of training.
