Audit

Introduction

The ability to permanently store explosive ordnance (EO), which for the purposes of this procedure includes non-explosive dangerous goods and non-explosive associated components, at units, whether on land or at sea on maritime platforms, provides an increased degree of operational readiness and flexibility in training. Consequently, formal periodical inspections of EO holdings are conducted to ensure that EO on hand is both serviceable for use and stored safely. These inspections are to be known as Explosive Ordnance Monitoring Audits. Un-scheduled visits are also used to support units in the management and upkeep of their EO holdings.
The object of monitoring audits is to ensure that functional processes are evident to show that EO regulations and procedures have been implemented, Defence Group EO safety practices are effective and that the Heads of Defence Groups are advised of EO safety levels within their organisation. This is achieved by a combination of audit, inspections of EO facilities and EO holdings.

Pre-Audit Correspondence

Pre-audit/inspection correspondence, either electronic or hard copy, is to be raised as follows:

 A. Where DEOS (EOMA) or combined DEOS (EOMA)/REOS audits/inspections have been scheduled, DEOS (EOMA) is to prepare all pre-audit/inspection correspondence and provide copies to REOS.

B. Where REOS audits/inspections, range practice visits and liaison visits are scheduled, REOS is to prepare all pre-audit/inspection and visit correspondence with information copies provided to DDEOMA.

REOS is to formally advise DDEOMA when a scheduled audit/inspection is either rescheduled or cancelled and the reasons for the change.

Is there a request to change the inspection?

Conclusion

Overall Assessment of the AOI

Reporting of Audit Findings
On completion of each audit the findings are to be recorded in a report supported by objective evidence. Where a combined audit/inspection has been conducted, the draft report is to be provided to the REOS inspectors to ensure no omissions or errors are include in the final report.

Was the Aaudit ouctome Satisfactory?

Unsatisfactory. The EO management processes and procedures are not producing the desired result. EO management and safety documentation is generally not adhering to policy and/or application of the documentation is not reflective of methods being performed. Formal corrective action is urgently required.

Indicate the number of CARs associated with the outcomes from the AOI

Satisfactory. All EO management and safety principles are generally followed and their application adheres to policy. These existing local EO processes and procedures produce the desired result. There are no systemic deficiencies are noted that require immediate corrective action.
