BACTEC provides comprehensive reports on the potential risk posed by unexploded ordnance based upon the site location, extent, source and nature of potential UXO, the likelihood and consequence of encountering UXO related to the proposed use of the site. The report can be provided either in the standard BACTEC format or tailored to meet the client's specific requirements, such as IMAS, Ciria C681 (UK only) publication or to other specifications as required.

  • Local research including select interviews with local inhabitants where appropriate
  • Military history and records
  • Historical aerial photography/satellite imagery
  • Likely nature of contamination
