New: DOE-STD-1236-2020, Canine Explosive Training Aid Management

Explosive training aids are used for training, certifying and performance testing of canines. The utility and effectiveness of the training aids can be significantly reduced if they become contaminated with other explosive types. Care in handling, transportation, and storage of explosive training aids will help maintain their overall quality and avoid cross-contamination. Additionally, recognizing when it is time to replace training aids will help ensure that canine teams are being trained and are performing at the highest level possible. This standard outlines accepted management practices for ensuring the quality of explosive training aids.
